Lakeside path

A stone path running alongside Morskie Oko, a Polish lake located high in the Tatra Mountains.
The name "Morskie Oko" ("Sea Eye", "Eye of the Sea") is derived from an old legend, according to which the lake was connected to the sea via an underground passage... Morskie Oko is one of the most popular destinations in the Tatras, often receiving over 50,000 visitors during the vacation season. It is reached by foot in about two hours from the nearest road that allows motorized access.

  1. Let's hope there's not an Argon Oko.


  2. I spent an unforgetable week in the Tatras a few years ago. Gorgeous national park with historic huts and hike-in mountain inns scattered throughout the mountains. Some of the trails are treacherous, with lots of scree. There's an ethereal memorial grove that is dedicated to those who died on the peaks and trails (http://restlesspaws.blogspot.com/2014/09/symbolic-cemetery-in-high-tatras.html).

    1. That memorial plaque with the hands is quite evocative. Tx.
