We drove into Lacul Vidra and Obarsia Lotrului this past weekend. The approximate location we visited is this one.
It’s a wonderful drive that offers gorgeous vistas (as most roads in Romania do), and because it’s not summer yet, the roads are relatively empty, meaning we were able to take our time and stop wherever we liked to take photos.
I’m going to publish the first group of photos today and the rest tomorrow, because there are quite a few of them and I’d rather not overwhelm you.
On the way, we found a grotto formed of ice and snow at the foot of a forest, right over the bed of a brook. The snow had been insulated by a thick leaf cover, and that’s why it had kept so far, but in 75-degree (Fahrenheit) late spring weather, I doubt it will keep for much longer. It was a remarkable sight for the middle of May, particularly since we weren’t at a high altitude (about 400-500 meters).
I recorded a short video of it as well.
We found a beautiful meadow on the top of a mountain, where we relaxed and breathed in the fresh air.
In case you’re wondering what I look like these days, here’s a portrait of me taken by Ligia.
