Walking in the Tatras of Slovakia
through a forest of spruce, rowan, oak, willows and many different species of pines.
Information boards gave details of the wild life in this area - lynx, brown bears, wolves, owls, eagles and woodpeckers being the most common.
Reaching Strbske Pleso, we took a chairlift to enjoy our last views of the awesome scenery in the high tatras, before catching a train back to Poprad, and the end of six magic days in the mountains.
