#98 (i) Ráno v lese na bývalých Kapličkách - Morning forest at former settlement Kapličky

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Photo made on the forest road connecting typical Šumava alpine meadow and peat pond below.

Very basic and well hidden base (hut) was built by our scouting group (with permission of forestry managemnet) in 1991 in formerly prohibited area on that meadow.

In the upper part of the meadow there used to be village called Kapličky (Chapels). In 1948 - 1990 borderline area was strictly prohibited and villages inside area - including Kapličky - were broken down. Only fragment of stone cross and water trough remained till now. You can also find relics of cellars there.

Hi Lady GGLL It was an easy shot... ;-)

Made just few meters away from well hidden base (hut) we built in 1991 in former prohibited area*. I had there overnight stay when I returned from trip to Austria.

*In 1948 - 1990 borderline area has no public access and villages in - like the one nearby - were broken down. Only fragment of stone cross and water trough remained till now.

Hi Mark thanks, you never know what's going on when strolling the woods in early autumn mornings and evenings, when the lights are down. ;-)

Hi Tim thanks for Fav. I hope your troubles with account and photos are solved. Although - your posts from last weeka are still "by unknown" in the forum. :(
