Pictures list from May 9th, 2009

I've read that some upgrade was done on Stan Valley during 2008 so I went to check the valley. It was the third time I climbed it but the trail seemed much more dangerous to me than previous times; maybe the water level from the small dam was flowing at a higher rate, maybe I got older... The 2008 upgrades are useful; some black ropes appeared as help in some difficult places, two more logs, some ladders were remade and all the trail was marked with plastic stripe. In 2006 I failed to identify the upper exit from the valley but this time, also helped by the description from the Natura Romaniei magazine (year 2, issue 10 - January 2009) I continued towards Calugarita and the southern shore of the Vidraru lake .
