Peacehike II

Yesterday saw the achievement of Peacehike II. Three hikers set forth from the beautiful mountain village of Paradsasvar, set in a valley surrounded by the high peaks of Hungary's Matra range. We climbed a succession of mountains, crossing a ridge to Mt. Galya, the second highest peak in the Matra range.

It was a steep climb much of the way, rewarded by magnificant views of the surrounding peaks and the villages dotting the valley below. Rasheed, Ralica and I continued ate lunch on a ridge over looking the Sasvar castle. We continued on to the summit of Mt. Galya, then headed down to Matraszentimre, the highest permanent settlement in Hungary.
