Ciucas: v. Berii free ride

I've tried to ride down the Tigai valley, as in the last year's April, but the very bad weather condition in the altitude prevented us to attempt to reach Ciucas peak. Finally we have reached the refuge, and went back on Berii valley.

The journey begins in a beautiful meadow with a lake, now overed with snow.

These are the remains of the chalet, in windy and cold weather.

The very strong wind blows all the snow.

Frozen pattern.

Dinner at about -20 C. It turned short as I started to fell the hypothermia bitting.

View from the "window".

The bottom of the valley, close to the ex-chalet.

I had to broke some sticks in order to pass through. It was like in a computer game :) (remember Prince of Persia ?)

More obstacles, twice I had to climb up, do to the lack of enough snow.

Here is the end of the line, very close to the national road.
