Polovrak on a Sunny November Day, 2023

In the forecasts for this week Tuesday looked like an oasis of sunny and warm weather among rainy days, strong winds and even snow. So husband and I decided to shuffle our plans a little, free Tuesday and go hiking in the nearby Lozen mountain.

It was a gorgeous day, probably the last for this year with temperatures in the range of 16-18 C.

Hike info:

Destination: peak Polovrak (1182 m)
Mountain: Lozen
Total length: 9.5 km
Elevation gain: 420 m
Total duration (plus picnic and rests): 3 h
Average difficulty: 3 / 10

The Lozen monastery. We had a glimpse at its grounds and bought a jar of wild flower honey.
The Sofia Valley between Lozen and Balkan mountains

Me-made items, worn on this hike:
Husband: men's boxers, Knip Mode cargo pants, Teal blouse
I:  lingerie, Burda Top

Rila to the south
and Vitosha to the west

The peaks of Rila are already covered with the first snow
We had a wonderful picnic on the grass, basking in the warm sun. The place was empty and quiet, complete bliss
