Another week, another peak – this time, we mean it literally. Teamwork makes the dream work: last Saturday, part of the team Egnosis went out for the traditional spring trip, conquering the nearest Bodok peak at almost 1200 m high. We followed the well-marked, blue hiking trail among deciduous forests and pastures, searching for snow flowers at all costs. Since in the previous year we found only snow and ice, we hoped that finally, we could meet the namesake of the trip, the snow flower, a harbinger of spring in our region. Despite the unfortunate weather forecast, we finally get… Continue reading Another week, another peak!

What a beautiful day! Last Saturday, a brave part of our team reached the snow-covered peak of the Bodok Mountains (approx. 1200 m). Our plan to visit the snow flower area was accomplished in about 30K steps in the pure, untouched deep snow. We decided to follow the bear steps, hoping to find the snow flowers. They were still hiding below the snow carpet, although the sun’s warmth rapidly calls them to appear. It was a hard and challenging yet breathtaking event that we promised to repeat next year too.
