Pchelina 2023

Our traditional spring hike to Pchelina dam. This place is so damn beautiful, it can really make your heart sing. I only hope this is not the last time we see it in its glory, as there were signs of construction works and uglification around it :(

The dirt road to the rocks was ploughed up and widened, the shrubs on the sides cut and mutilated, and some parts of the lands around the dam were cordoned and under construction. This place is one of the few really naturally beautiful places around and it should be protected from development :((

Thankfully, the land and paths around the chapel were more or less untouched.

Hike info:

Destination: Pchelina
Mountain region: Kraishte
Total length: 8 km
Elevation gain: 160 m
Total duration (plus beer pause): over 3 hours
Average difficulty:  2 / 10

The day was quiet, and unlike Pchelina on weekends, when it is packed with tourists, we were the only people on the rocks for quite a while. It was divine, just to stay lazy in the sun, to watch the water and the birds and to sip our beers.

Me-made items, worn on this hike:
I: lingerie, Houndstooth Hoodie, Green blouse
Husband: men's boxers, Knipmode cargo pants

After a long pause on the rocks we continued downstream and walked around the dam.

We should always come here on work days, that's settled!
