Bob, you really don't understand how much I'd like to actually be sitting in a pub drinking a bottle of Rakia right now!

Is there such thing as a "new" mountain?

Mkfarnam … yes … maybe not exactly "new" mountains, but it is well known that geologically there are “old folded” and “young folded” mountains.

For example in USA Appalachian are “old folded” mountains – appearing when America and Europe were touching each other. The same is with Ural in Russia – when Europe and Asia were touching.

80 000 000 years ago, when North America has begun shifting slowly to west, Cordilleran has begun to fold and rice up – it is an “Yang mountain” – it continues to go higher and higher. The same are cases with Alps in Europe, Himalayas in Asia, Andy in South America.

The case with the “Old mountain" in Bg is the same, but a little different. Geologically it is an “young folded” mountain, never mind we call it “Old” - people named it having no any relation with the geology …. Geologically the river crossing it (Iskar river - the photo below) is older than this mountain and it cut the mountain faster than rising up of the mountain, shaping very nice gorge I love to bicycle it so much …. Unfortunately I am not so sure, if my geology English is perfect … I hope you will understand …

We don't have site like that in Texas. Not enough mountains, not enough green foliage.

Nice to have you back a bit before your next escapade.

You are right Alex - this mountain consists only sediment type of rocks ... Just above the rocks you see in the photo there is a large karsts area. I will try to find a photo of large karsts spring just below these rocks. There is a great cave labyrinth there as well. The thing you have noticed is some monument – a communistic remains … they were maniacs to produce a false history …

My next escapade will be absolutely lazy … I intend to relax beneath the sun at some beach at the seaside at least 10 days … I only still do not know if it will be after 10 or 15 days …

Do you know what it is? I'm fascinated by that period and the people who lived in it.

They taught us very little in school. We studied Marx and Engel, but never actual communism. Just the working theory. We weren't even taught it was bad, we were taught from a neutral stand point which always surprised me as an entire generation saw half the world as enemies.

Austin ? I'll say you a joke, I loved so much in these years:
A man asked another one:
- How do you think ? who have found out the ?Communism?: scientists or philosophers ? ?
- I believe philosophers ? replied the other one ? if scientists have found out it, they surely had to try it first on the laboratory white mouse, not directly on the people ?.?

Austin ? immediately after communists hold the country government - September ?44, for several days they killed 30 ? 40 000 people ? nobody knows ? educated and intelligent people ? for a small country like Bg, it was too much ?
