On top of the mountain. Piatra Virgina.

” Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus. Autumn has always been my least favourite season. I don’t even know why when everything around you is so bright and colourful. Maybe because usually, it does not last long and shortly becomes very dark and muddy. This weekend I went up on a mountain to enjoy the colours while they still last. I could not recall ever hiking on a mountain before. And I doubt that I did some mountain hiking as a baby.
