Of course the whole reason for making the 7 km (4.3 mile) hike on the trail up the narrow valley of Ozalenka Creek is to get up into the alpine meadows. The trail eventually opens up into a long wide valley surrounded by peaks and open flowery meadows. One of the charms of being in the alpine is the vistas available to the eye, softened by the deep green grasses dotted with unique flowers that grow only in the harsh conditions of high elevation. Below are a few photos of the surrounding mountains.
