This year the summer was short and cool, autumn began right with the first days of September and we've had no Indian summer yet. In comparison, last year was so hot, September was a summer month and it was pleasantly warm until the mid of November. That's the kind of autumn I like :) Today is rainy and the temperatures have dropped and are expected to continue to drop further during the week. And according to all forecasts, yesterday was the last relatively warm day of early autumn. So we grabbed our backpacks and went for a hike in Vladaya. The forest was still mostly green, with patches of yellow and red, the picturesque Vladaya river was full-watered and the sun was out most of the time. I wish I had remembered to take my Carotina gloves with me for a few theme pictures, but I totally forgot.
