Pictures list from August 30th, 2008

A trip quite similar to the previous one; we've left the car on the Transfagarasan road at 1910m elevation at the last intersection of the paved road with the trail which comes from the Capra Chalet; we took the trail upwards towards Capra Lake and Saddle . The initial plan called for a climb on Vanatoarea lui Buteanu peak but the strongs winds sent us back towards the Capra Lake then the steep descent trail towards Cota 2000 Salvamont Chalet . The weather was quite ugly, with rain at the beginning and end of the trip plus very chilly wind gusts.
