I continue the story of a hiking trip to the Marmarosa Range that I started last week. After a short rest, we began our ascent to the mountain plain that ran through the dark spruce forest. It was a pretty heavy lift that took about two hours. If we could see the whole height of the mountain from the bottom, it would have been a little frightening before the climb. But, I mentioned, our path ran through thick forest, so the complexity of this route we could already assess on the mountain when we climbed.
When we were walking through the forest, from time to time we found mushrooms - Boletus edulis, Boletus badius, chanterelles, and I managed to find a very rare mushroom - Grifola fondosa. Then we cooked these mushrooms during the halt, it was delicious.
As we emerged from the forest into the mountain plain, we noticed that everything was covered with thick fog. In fact, we just went into a cloud that stuck to the top of the mountain. Because of this, after a while, our outerwear and gear were covered with tiny droplets of water.
Yes, walking in the fog, we reached the place of our night. It was a house for shepherds who lived there in the summer grazing their sheep in the valley. However, there were sixteen of us, and there were only 6 beds in the house, so we installed three more tents so that we would all be protected from the weather. I will tell you about how we arranged it all in the cloud next time, and now I will share with you, friends, photos taken in the fog that day.
