Lubash and Strazha 2019

Two years ago husband, Gaby and I took part in the mass hike on Strazha in support of an ecological protest in the region.We loved the region and decided to come back some day to hike the other small mountain there - Lubash. And so we did yesterday. The day was very warm and perfect for a hike. First we climbed Lubash (1399 m), then we went down and tried to climb Strazha along a different trail, which was present on both of our maps, but was absent in reality - the path to the top was overgrown by thick bushes and from what we read later in the evening, the mountain was considered unclimbable from any other side but the one we had already climbed two years ago. Still, it was a very long and very pleasant hike. The gorgeous views to all sides, the fresh air of early spring and the warm March sun were so worth our efforts!
