Nice trail, @Myrathor, very interesting. I like also to collect cranberries, but I prefer mushroom. Which month it was? I saw the temperature on the top was 5 °C.
This october I went on the alps, in Cadore area, to collect mushroom, and the temperature at 1800 meters was 18 °C

@ermest It was in August. Latest week. We go here regularly at the end of the summer. And we like gathering mushrooms. In this area too mushrooms not grow. So kids gather cranberries and blueberries. On Sněžka weather is very unstable.

Grazie @Myrathor, anche la seconda parte è veramente molto bella. Quello che mi colpisce molto è l'altezza dei pali accanto al sentiero, che mi fa pensare che la neve adesso sia altissima.
