    It is full of woods around Borovets, so I was not surprised to see a squirrel there :)

    In general squirrels in Bulgaria do not like people that much, they usually run away from them.

    This one looks very shy on the picture but was an exception of the rule. Only a minute after I saw her it came town to a guy who was working in the restarunt nearby and ate from his hand :)))

    Chernata skala (The Black Rock)

    Chernata skala (The Black Rock)

    There is a forestry in Borovets and a dust road that goes right next to the forestry building if you walk up the road or about an hour you will get to Chernata skala (The Black Rock). You will be walking trough a pine wood and breath the fresh air that usually goes with the pine woods. If you are lazy, you can go upthere by car but be aware that it is a back road and there is no pavement or asphalt.

    Chernata skala (The Black Rock) is a picturosque place. It is a high rock from which a wonderful view is reavealed infront of you. There are nice places for picknick in the area.

    I would recommand you to go there when the weather is warm and nice. I bet it would not be such fun to go there when it is coled and covered with deep snow.

    Mile High In The Sky

    Well you can't get much more off the beaten path than this.
    We took the gondola several times up to the very top, it was about an half hr ride up, and so well worth it, the views were absolutely out of this world, I've never seen anything more beautiful, from the snow covered pine tree's, far away towns to mountains miles away.
    I think you'll find that going up or down in one of these, you won't do much talking, the scenery is too good to miss
