Pictures list from May 1st, 2004

One-day tip; the initial plan called for walking for three quarters of the time during daylight and the final quarter under the moonshine; due to delays the proportion ended being equal. We've trekked the eastern half of the ridge trail: Voina - Saua Argesel - Saua Gainatu Mare - Saua Gradisteanu - Papusa Peak; then descended via Spintecatura Papusii (here the night fell), Batrana Peak and Plaiul lui Patru . We only needed flashlights while walking in the forest; above the treeline the moonlight was more than enough. Unfortunately Elvis had a foot problem only one hour into the trip so he had to return; he waited for us at the car.
