We've been enjoying an unusually warm March weather this last week and after last Saturday's alpine Vitosha today we wanted sunshine, warmth, spring flowers and easy tracks - and Cherna Gora is just that - its highest peak Tumba is only 1129 m.
A panorama from the summit Tumba - from here one can observe the snow covered peaks of Vitosha and Rila and the dozens of smaller mountains in the Kraishte area.
On peak Tumba
Our picnic place with a beautiful view, accompanied by bird songs (I did some sock knitting here, while hubby was having a nap).
We went down from Tumba and then hiked a different route and climbed a few other lower peaks (probably Kitka, Garvan, Gradishte)

This tree reminds me very much of a fractal
Our starting and end point - Giginski monastery
Our first stork sighting - a family nesting in one of the villages we past through on our way.
