Though we are always sad to see another summer flying by, autumn has a nice comfort to offer: colorful autumn leaves and landscapes. This is the time to enjoy the warm yellow, orange and brown colors before the landscape turns into bare and grey.
And we like visiting different cities and national parks each year to see them dressed in their autumn beauty. Last year we had an amazing weekend getaway in Slovak Paradise National Park. This year we enjoyed the autumn landscape in Slovakia’s High Tatras.
Since the High Tatras are high mountains, as you might suspect, autumn colors come a bit earlier there: already by September. Though there are mostly pine forests and only smaller regions of seasonal forests in the Tatras, we could enjoy bright orange colors thanks to the different kind of moss and lichen.
Mornings and evenings were quite chilly. Sometimes those dark peaks got lost in the dense fog (though that could happen in the summer, as well).
But the turquoise alpine lakes, pretty waterfalls, sun-kissed valleys and magnificent peaks impressed as they always do. We like the autumn face of the High Tatras. And we can’t wait to experience a white winter wonderland there!
