In August'98 we spent few weeks in Ko¶cielisko village facing the Tatra mountains.
We walked, attended the Tatra Autumn Festival, met old friends.

Our lodging at Ko¶cielisko

Near walks :

Wayside shrine, Mietłówka clearing - a lot of raspberries and bilberries

Forest between Leja's Valley and Chochołowska Valley

In the same forest

Visiting the Cracow Gorge

Excursion to Czerwone Wierchy (=the Red Peaks):

- Uff, I'm tired of climbing here. That peak - it's Giewont. We are higher, aren't we?

- Małoł±czniak (= Peak above the Small Meadow) My first summit above 2000 m. What a sight!

On the summit of Krzesanica

Hala G±sienicowa (=G±sienicowa Coomb)

Now we may start to go fast!

But to leave such amount of bilberries? What a pity!

Skupniów Upłaz (=Skupien's Terrace). - How quickly we'll be down? Sooner than what the guide says?

¦winica - Zawrat

August morning can be very cold in the mountains!

- Fall down here, could it be mortal?

- There's nothing like chains! I adore such routes!

- But I forgot my gloves, how could I?!

- At last on the summit of ¦winica!

- Oh, I can show you, where it is!

- Rest on the Zawrat Pass.

- This snow never will melt, will it?

Farewell to our host and his son:
