[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These are Karkonosze Mountains a part of Sudety. They are situated in West-South of Poland - about 400 km from my home city - Krakow.
We spent four days in Karpacz in Sudety Mountains. I think, that I have never been there before. We had two mountain treks through Karkonosze.
On Friday the weather was beautiful apart from strong wind. On Saturday there was strong wind, a little of snow (but it was slippery - so sometimes we had some dangerous situations), and dense fog (so almost no photos from Saturday).
About Friday's trek. We started from Karpacz,went through Sowia Valley (Owl Valley), Sowia Pass (1164m), Srednia Kopa, Czarna Kopa(1411m), Sniezka (1602m - the highest peak of Czech Republic and Sudety Mountains), Slonecznik, Pielgrzymy, Polana Bronka Czecha and again to Karpacz.
Thanks for visiting.
