After the big political transitions in Eastern Europe in the early 1990s we had visited quite sometimes this magnificent mountainous area of the Czech Republic being phantastic for hiking and wandering. More than 20 years later we have returned there again for another trip in the 1st week of October 2019 and here are some impressions.
Photos were made at the rock formations of Prachovske Skala, Hruba Skala and Mala Skala, as well in the cities Liberec and Sobotka.
Now this will be the last feature regarding our Summer holidays in Austria, and after Ulli (who operates this blog) already has shown for instance some tracks left by Ernest Hemingway here in Montafon as well, it is now really time for some flowers and animals to be found in the beautiful Austrian Alps, colourful impressions picked up by me.
