Yesterday, The Padgett Family, a German family from our Sunday gatherings, and I went to the north side of M!trov!ca to do a little of exploring.
There is a peak on the north side where there are ruins of a castle. Yes, a castle! I’m not really sure of the history of the castle, but it was definitely worth the climb to see.
The hike up the mountain took about a 45 minutes, and the views of the city were just beautiful. It was quite cloudy, so you couldn’t see super far, but it was nice, cool weather for the hike up the mountain. Any warmer, and it would definitely not have been quite as enjoyable. God even held off the rain that threatened in the distance!
Not the best picture of me…but I was pretty proud of my hike up the mountain. (And what you can’t see in that photo is the huge swarm of tiny flies that were in my hair, shirt, eyes and mouth! 🙂 )
