Barania Góra is a mountain in southern Poland, at a height 1220 m amsl (4003 feet), it is second highest mountains in the Silesian Beskids. The sources of the Vistula, the longest Polish river, are located on the western slope of the mountain.
20.05.2012 year we decided go to Barania Góra whitch translated means "Ram Mountain". When I was planning this trip I don't know that come with us my niece, so I chose one of the longest trails to the peak. She's never been in the mountain yet, so before us was tough trip...

Initially the trail leads uphill through the forest and tens of minutes later we took several nice pictures for souvenir.

Then we got the Hala Radzikowska where views were beautiful because this day the weather was exceptionally good.

peak of the mountain....is far away
goal is far away
Through Magurka Radziechowska and Magurka Wiślańska we went in an open area without trees, so around us views were amazing to all Silesian Mountains.
Barania Góra on straight
After about 4:30 hours later we reached mountaintop, where situated is lookout tower. You can see from here the panorama of the mountains of three countries: Polish, Czech and Slovakia. We could see: Silesian Beskid, Little Beskids, Maków Beskids, Żywiec Beskids, Tatra Mountains, Choč Mountains, Malá Fatra, Strážov Mountains, Maple Mountains and Moravian-Silesian Beskids.

to road back is long....next 4 hours
Tens of minutes later, after a rest we went back, the way was long and difficult because my niece has enough of walking and we had to take a breakes very often....so instead of going four hours we walked over 5 hours.
horse were seeing us
At the end of way we saw rams behind the fence, from which derived the name of the mountain:)
Despite the hard and long way we have nothing to regret, the weather was perfect, the views were spectacular.
