Following wolf's trace. Tatra ski tour adventure

Hard to believe, but there are still some bites of Tatras I have never tasted, places that after all these years filled with mad fascination for exploration remain undiscovered for me. That makes them especially tempting now, when I stay so far from my beloved peaks and valleys.
Until early March, the uppermost part of Koprova valley where the legendary forest wilderness of Temne Smreciny spreads was among those missing places.

During those 3 sunny, winter days in Tatras I found time for recalling myself on skis around Strbske Pleso and living an unforgetable survival adventure while ski crossing Tatra range from Tri Studnicky on southern side to North through passes of Zavory and Tomanova towards Ornak on Polish side. No signs of any human in the mountains just wolf's traces at dawn to follow...Gorgeous winter scenery of those days and the fact that my Guardian Angel took good care of me once again that long, frosty(-15 Celsius) night with unplanned bivouac down in Ticha valley deep forests makes the trip one of the most memorable ones in recent seasons.

Some photomemories here for your enjoyment.

Tatra's wildest...

Many thanks to these gorgeous album full of wild corners. Long ago I've been thinking of visiting these places, but after 2004 hurricane force winds I completelly gave up this plan. I will try to make a short trip in autumn period, when the bears can be observed above timberline....
