Happy New Year to all TN Members!
This photo was taken on 8th of December 2012.
This is a peak of Swinica (2301m).
We have spent three days in Zakopane between 7th and 9th of December(Zakopane is known as a capital of Polish mountains). There were very cold - in the mountain between -15 and -20C degrees. But apart from cold it was beautiful. First snow, beautiful views, not many people.
On Friday we had 10 hours trek: started from Siwa Polana, went through Polana Chocholowska, Grzes (1653m), Rakon (1879m), Wolowiec (2064m). The way back, the same. We had to use all the winter equipment.
On Saturday we were only on Kasprowy Wierch (1987m) using cable car.
On Sunday we started from Krupowki in Zakopane, went near Wielka Krokiew, Dolina Bialego, Sarnia Skala (1377m), Dolina Strazyska, Dolina ku Dziurze and again Zakopane.
