    In the area of Arona, there are many distinct mountains. They each reach up to 1000 meters high, but their height makes a big impression because you can observe them almost from the sea level. So one afternoon I've decided to go for a hike to a nearby mountain with quite interesting, flat top.

    Niestety nie wystartowałem w tegorocznej edycji Beskidy Ultra Trail. I choć złożyło się na to kilka powodów, ostatecznie jestem z tego mimo wszystko zadowolony. Udało mi się za to pojawić z aparatem na trasie wyścigu i zrobić kilka zdjęć uczestnikom. Okazało się to samo w sobie organizacyjnym wyzwaniem.
