Calimani mountains with puppies

How would it be a trip to the mountains with two puppies?
Would they have enough stamina to climb a ~2000m peak? Is the trip too long?
How would they behave in the wild?

The above questions were just a few we had in mind in the days before the weekend, so it was a challenge to choose the right trek.

We preferred a trip which is relatively short, starting nearby Colibita lake up to Bistriciorul peak, by the blue triangle trek. On the map below:
– black: the place we camped first night and then drove a little bit up
– blue: the trek starting point
– red: the refuge where we stayed Saturday night
– fuchsia: Bistriciorul peak

At the end of the Colibita lake there is a nice place (maybe the only?) where you can put your tent without entering the private land of somebody. It’s August, a Saturday morning and perfect weather for trekking.

Now we are way above the lake, right above the forest and the view is already amazing.

After the arrival to the refuge we had time to walk around aand photo-shoot poisonous mushrooms in the forest. Poisonous because we didn’t find any edible .. or we weren’t sure if they were.

Jack does not agree with the placement of the peak sign.

Hiro just enjoys the moment.

In August, in the Calimani mountains you could “snack” all day blueberries. That means your trek time could be altered and become way much longer – it’s hard (for me) to ignore them and just pass by :).

Usually when I'm in the mood I write 'Biographical Info' about me. Maybe next week.
Of course, with a backpack.
