Ascent Trip Report

Part of Euro-Trip through Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, Slovenia, and Croatia from 14-30 Aug 2009

So, there was no summit goal with this one, but my father and I had a rental car for the day and had originally wanted to do Musala. Unfortunately, my Dad's back was acting up, so we headed to Rila instead. We then drove past Rila and found a good trail heading up to some more ruins. It was an was hike, but a nice break from city sights in Sofia. The monastery is really interesting too.

We did some hiking in Delphi, Greece and Plitvice Lakes NP, Croatia as well, but no nearby notable summits.
