Groapa Ruginoasa

Groapa Ruginoasa
Made by Ovidiu H.
The Ruginoasa Hole represents a particular erosion phenomenon. It is a huge ravine dug up into the crest of the summit that closes to the South the Seaca valley, encompassing over 100 m in depth and 600 m in diameter. All over its surface, a very active erosion process brought to daylight the quartz strata, whose redish-violet colour gives the area a special appearance, like an open wound in the mountain, seen from great distances. Sharp edges, like razors, converge to its centre where a small valley forms. This is the origin of the Seaca valley, which transforms into a canyon almost impossible to surpass due to its waterfalls.

The Apuseni Mountains represent one of the most interesting tourist sites in Romania. The karstic rocky relief (about 400 caves), as well as the specific flora and fauna are as many reasons for calling these mountains a natural reserve. In Summer time, farmers are leading their herds of cows and flocks of sheep in the high mountain, where they rest until the first snowfall. You may admire on the high pastures the hodai, Summer houses used by local people, while being with their herds in the mountains. One of the main points of interest is the Aries Valley, including the beautiful villages of Albac, Garda, Arieseni.

I first thought it would be boring to go see this hole in the mountains, caused by landsliding...but it was kind of impressing when we got there! I have to admit that when we planned this vacation only 150 km from home, I felt a little dissapointed, scared of the hours of hiking through the mountains...but it wasn't all that bad :), actually it was kind of great!

La Arieşeni lumea profită de toate dealurile ca să schieze, să se dea cu sania sau (cazul meu) pur şi simplu să se plimbe prin zăpadă. Aş sta acolo o veşnicie! For those of you who still want to be kids: buy a sleigh!

Gârda de Sus. Casa de piatră. Nu, nu e o casă de piatră. Casa de piatră e cătunul unde am surprins imaginea. Garda de Sus village. Old house of wood with straw roof. Apuseni mountains, Romania.

The mountain man lives in Arieseni, a Romanian village in the beautiful Apuseni Mountains. He was kind enough to tell me about his daughter that now lives in the city and that he now is 71 years old.

We've found this place during our trip to Transylvania purely by chance. It has no name (as far as I know). The steam comes out from a small cave and cows use it as a watering trough.
