Peak Golyam Kupen 2022

Long time no see :) 

We were busy with some repair works at home, then I hurt my back badly and spent more than two weeks mostly sitting in a reclining chair and trying to find the least hurting position :( I haven't sewn for more than a month now and I itch to go back to my creative hobbies. 

This Saturday I felt sufficiently recovered to go on a fairly easy hike in the higher altitude parts of Vitosha. We walked the trail from Aleko Hut to peak Golyam Kupen and back and even if we had planned it, we couldn't have chosen a more perfect timing for hiking in this part of the mountain - all of the late spring / early summer flowers were in bloom and the mountain was a garden.
