Pictures list from August 20th, 2006

Leaving home a bit late I managed to reach Cojocaru on Dambovita valley only at 12.30 noon. From here I climbed along Dragosloveni Valley up to Garofita Pietrei Craiului chalet then continued until the trail which runs parallel the main ridge some 500m lower . From here I turned left thru Umerii Pietrei Craiului then met the La Lanturi trail ; which I followed up to Saua Grind . I turned then right to trek the southern ridge up to Saua Funduri where I arrived at 8.15pm. The descent was by Urzicii valley to Prepeleag where the night arrived (it was 9pm). For the next hour I descended thru the woods to Crucea Granicerului and the Hunting Lodge ; the last 3km were on forestry road. A nice trip which took me 10 hours instead of the planned 8.
