Day 3 in our hike to Black Rock Lake in Lagodekhi
As the saying goes, “Sunshine is medicine for the soul.” We both woke up feeling quite tired, but were bright eyed and bushy tailed to see a huge blue sky out the window of the shelter. It was 5:30 am and what we thought to be the perfect opportunity to catch a time lapse of the sunshine and clouds from on top of the world. We were at 3500m above sea level; you could see the whole of Georgia. Not really, but it seemed like that. It was an extraordinary feeling to be so high, yet have such clarity of the world below. Amazing. We spent the next hour taking pictures every :30 seconds to create an epic time lapse. We, then, ate breakfast and re-packed all our wet belongings into plastic bags to make our descend back to Lagodehki. We calculated our descend should take between 5-6 hours based on our ascend travel time and distance. Going down must be quicker, right? Let the descend begin.
