Some pics from Saturday's hike
8

Visited the 7 Rila lakes which are of glacial origin and are situated in the Rila mountain in Bulgaria between 2,100 and 2,500 metres above sea level. They're a super popular hiking destination in Bulgaria and while it can be a long and tiring hike (about 5-6 hours) though we continued an extra hour to a lookout spot where all 7 lakes can be seen.

I had a dilemma what lenses to bring, at first I considered the XC 16-50 and the Samyang 12mm f/2, then decided the kit lens would be enough but in the end I carry both plus the XC 50-230 The latter saw very limited use.

The upper two lakes were still icy. And the outside temperature was about 20°C!

There were a few snow patches the higher we went, and this lookout even had a tiny snowman built on it

Lots of wildflowers on this bright summer day
