Bílý Potok means white brook in Czech. It is a town in the Liberec District, North of Prague, close to the Polish border. We saw the rocks of Frýdlantské cimbuří  (Frýdlantské battlements) from the town and decided it would be great to hike up there.

P1090700

This is the other stream. Guess what? This is called Černého  Potoka or Black Brook.Still climbing up through the trees.

 

P1090732

Granite outcrop on the way up. There was a metal ladder leading to a view point on top.

Img_3772

Still climbing.

P1090737

Frýdlantské cimbuří  (Frýdlantské battlements). Apparently first climbed in 1912. (900m)

P1090795

Again. You can see the metal access ladder installed in 1978.

P1090792

Trees damaged by pollution.

P1090796

I love interesting rock formations.

P1090799

Oh yes, I pretty partial to these as well.

P1090685

We stayed at a camping site in the town, the chalets for rent were booked up, so we stayed in a large frame tent belonging to the owner. No time wasted erecting and dismantling our tent and it was much more spacious. The town itself was not what most would consider to be pretty. A lot of industrial decay in evidence. It does have its own railway connection though,

While driving the car along Czech roads, the discoveries came thick and fast.

P1090048

Nearly all small roads were lined with orchard trees. The varieties were mainly apple and cherry trees.

P1090037

Lots of places had their resident storks.

P1090057

Solar power farms were being set up on former industrial sites.

P1090197

Of course there were a few wind farms, but I don’t think they get a lot of wind.

P1090410

Outside of the cities, villages and towns all had Public Address Systems on telegraph poles. We went through one village as it was broadcasting. Can someone tell me what they are used for?

Img_3681

The farms grew a wide variety of crops. Who knows what these thistle type plants are?

P1090665

The Czech Republic has an extensive rail network. The trains may not be that new though.

P1090884

It is not unusual to find deer grazing alongside the road.
