OUR HIKE IN THE BUKK MOUNTAINS

Arlo, Briggi, Emily, Eve and I went for a hike together a little north of my village. We had a great time and here are some photos so you can see what we did.

We traveled to Miskolc, then onto Lillafured where we wanted to see Istvan Cave and hike in the Bukk Mountains. We had to wait for our cave tour so we decided to eat. This is a Hungarian Pizza. It is very common for pizza to have ketchup on it. Emily and I thought it was disgusting so we could not eat it. Plus this ketchup was more like French salad dressing then ketchup anyway.

We had to wait, but eventually made it into Istvan Cave. We were not allowed to use flashes in the cave so most of my pictures did not come out well, including the one of the bat that I took for my mother since it is her favorite animal. This is Arlo, he looks like he is a member of the Blair Witch Project, all he needs is some snot running down into his mouth!
Arlo and Emily resting and talking while they wait for the rest of us. I am sure we are off using the woods, it is very very common for me to have to use the bathroom while out and about.
I don't really remember what happened here, but as you can see Arlo and Emily thought is was hilarious. They laughed hard as they sat perched on the throne of stone.
And with the Fall like atmosphere came many opportunities for good old fashion leaf fights. As you can see we are just big kids enjoying the out doors. OOPPS!! Briggi fell, and Arlo takes his chance to kick her while she is down. Oh well, she gets her revenge in the next photo.
Next we hiked to the top of the "mountain", I say "mountain" because anyone who has seen a real mountain would call this a hill at best a bluff. We decided we were too good for the path and made our own climbing straight up.
This is me. I am at the top of the hill and very hot. Let me tell you why. Anyone who knows me well knows I loose just about everything. Well, this day was not different. After making our own path, I dropped my new camera. Did I notice right away? Of course not, I had to scale my way back down grab the fallen camera and then climb back up. So I did a lot of the hill twice and was pooped when I finally reached the rest of the crew.

that pizza doesn't seem so disguisting... although, I'm Hungarian, I'm used to it...
