Manastirishte on a Warm December Day

After a spell of several cold and rainy days, this weekend the weather is comparatively warm and very pleasant for hiking in the low mountains. Husband and I chose again peak Manastiriste, for the third time this year, as the destination of our hike.

Although the day was mostly cloudy, with scattered sunshine now and then, the temperatures were in the range of 15C, which is pretty warm for December.

We had expected muddy paths, but the trail was actually solid and grassy, just perfect for walking.

We decided to take a detour and climb the neighboring peak Duralia as well.
