Green Dry Mountains

In the Suche (Dry) Mountains, the beeches are surprisingly green in May: an easterly view, towards the mountains around the Kłodzko Basin.

Re: marvellous green

Yep, a real sea of green - soothing. A bit like Ireland? Or not cloudy enough?
Cheers

Re: marvellous green

Ireland ? please... definetely not cloudy enough, you won't find such forests here and so on... It's so great I haven't left the house for the whole weekend, so feel lucky to have our mountains just stone's throw away from yourself!

Man, you can't imagine how much I dream of going hiking to some Carpathian ranges nowadays...

Cheers from Dublin

Re: marvellous green

Cheer up Tomek! Time and distance are relative. A thousand miles for a falcon can be less than a stone's throw for a lame grasshopper. Especially if the falcon can relax on the plane :)

It looks a bit too green

to be anything BUT the Carpathians!

Its hard to make a comparison, when the object being compared is etched into your mind; like a traumatic event you'd like to cast out of your mind and deposit into a clear blue mountain lake.

This is a green scene that should be heard
as well as seen, because it sends a unique
message to us all - that of peace & tranquility !

LOL What a dry comment!
BTW Isn't it about time Larry of AZ published a volume of blood-red poetry? :)

No need to be sorry, Larry, your dry red humor matches these green Dry Mts perfectly :)))

Seriously ...

Why (on God's Green Earth) do they call them
the "Dry Mountains ???"

Re: Seriously ...

A good question, thanks for asking, Larry. They're of old, hard, quite impermeable volcanic rock, which results in steep slopes and dry valleys. You just can't find a decent spring with drinkable water in these mts although there is a little mud along the way. Still they're really as green as in the pix, the reason – besides the annual rainfall of up to 0.9m – is probably the snow lasting relatively long.
