    Ah, former Hungarian territory, currently under Romania. History makes everything more... interesting.

    Now that I've been at home for weeks now and we only travel when we have to, taking large objects with us I couldn't get to ride Teresa - until this Monday. Finally the fog cleared up and we had a nice and sunny day with 11°C | 52°F in the afternoon, so we decided to realize an old plan of ours - to climb the hill/mountain that we often see when riding nearby. It's the Baglyas:

    And this is how the area looks at (a warm, snow-less) winter:

    This time, we parked Teresa in the village at its feet, and finally, we climbed up!

    The barren peak (there are old bunkers below):

    And the view towards home:

    Rocks and cute moss pillows on the way down:

    The tank is close to the end, and it will be a bad one :eek:

    Nice pics as usual Alvaro, thanks :)
    How high did you climb then?

    Wasn't too hard, really. We couldn't find the tourist sign that should have been there, so went straight toward the peak. Once we found ourselves in an old, deserted garden, but crossing a long-fallen fence helped. That side wasn't rocky anyway, and on the other way there was a trail among the rocks too :)

    Should be possible to drive up too, there were dirt roads up there, coming from other directions, but sometimes you need to use your own muscles :)

    HI Alvaro84:

    Darn nice pics as always!

    Do you have any closeups of the wooden pole shown in the 4th pic? Looks interesting.

    TIA

    It'll take some time, but I'll try to remember to take one when we go there next time - from the opposite direction.

    It's a memento of the Russian troops leaving Hungary. Quite well placed, the Russians had bases in the Bakony range, and this particular area was a shooting range too (and it still is, for the Hungarian army and NATO events are held nearby too).
