Manastirishte in June

I am so tired of this rain! It is Saturday today and it is raining, again. Last weekend the forecast was, of course, more rain, so we cancelled our plans for the preserved area above Pernik, where it was expected to be pouring (no idea if it actually did) and ventured a small hike to the nearby peak Manastirishte. 

The weather was actually fine, though with very high humidity in the air, and the fields around the village of Plana were like gardens, abundant with wild flowers.

Hike info:

Destination: peak Manastirishte (1338 m)
Mountain: Plana
Total length: 7.5 km
Elevation gain: 160 m
Total duration (plus picnic and rests): 2 h 30 min

:We had our picnic here, on the grass, with a view to the gentle curves of Plana. Rila is far in the distance, hidden in the summer haze
