Hike #18: Frozen Rychleby Mountains (Czechia), by @onlavu

Hi there!

Let me share with you several photos which I took on February 6, 2021. I hiked in the Rychlebské hory (Rychlebské Mountains), also known as Rychleby . These mountains share partly border with Poland. Weather conditions were as follows: temperature around 2°C, poor visibility, generous snow cover (here and there knee deep mantle of snow). I enjoyed it in spite of worse weather as something unexpectedly emerged... Read on to find out 😃

Sadly, this time I can forget about any panorama 😢

Rock formation called (translated from Czech) The Rock of Death . It is true that under these weather conditions, it is kind of very slippery, easy to fall down. I will explore it next time.

Even worse visibility.

These paperweights could be left at home I guess.

A small branch covered with frozen crystals caught my attention.

Out of the woods now.

In the meadow, which is popular amongst locals. Mouflons (originally thought these were chamois though still unsure). Unexpected!

Oh, they just noticed me. They are gone now.

Back in civilization, horses being fed. It is snowing.

They call this as the Giant wooden table and chair . It is close to Skorošice village.

Still sleepy, shy, and slowly moving hairy caterpillar.

Almost at finish. In the meantime, my water supply slowly turns into ice.

Bleak conditions to go through, well worthwhile sharing how bad it can become in winter. Thoroughly enjoyed your photography and talk about the trail.

Yes the water bottle starting to ice up is clear convincing evidence of just how cold @onlavu

Ono i takové "panoramatické" počasí má své kouzlo. Super fotky a krásně zachycená zima 😉

Wow, I live in Vietnam, a tropical country. I never see something like this in my country. Thanks for sharing!

Hezký výlet. Škoda že nebylo modré nebe na focení. Jinak podle mě ty zvířata jsou mufloni a ne kamzíci, ale to jen tak na okraj.
