We like being surrounded by colorful blooming flowers – I mean who wouldn’t? And in addition to spring we love high mountains, too. A random good thing about them is that when spring ends at lower elevations that’s the time when it begins in the high mountains. Alpine meadows will be covered by thousands of pretty wildflowers throughout June and July.
And we enjoyed this colorful parade of nature in Slovakia’s High Tatras last summer. Small and Great Cold Valleys, Mylnická Valley, Furkotská Valley, Mengusovská Valley – just to mention some of the loveliest places to find wildflowers. And here comes what we’ve found: we’d like to share the wildflower magic with you in this photo essay.
