Matka Canyon and Lake

From the vote.

 I spent some time the other day going to Matka Lake. It is very close to Skojpe, and it is beautiful. I heard it is very busy on the week-end so I went on Monday. It is very cool. For visitors you park about 1/4 mile away and walk up the river to the damn. You go up and it is cool and great.

I took a boat to see the lake and it is impressive. The cliffs and walks are very cool. I ate at a little restaurant on the lake. It was the most expensive lunch I have had here (like $20).

ON the way back down I took a rest along the river. And I saw something crazy. I have included the video here. These kids jumped off the bridge and swam / were swept up down this river that I would never go down. It was very cool.

Kids jumping into the river / damn overflow

They swam down this. I was a bit afraid.

The steps to the island in between two sides of the river. The only way to the island is along the concrete walkways.

The craziest thing I have seen in a while.


  1. I know, right? I was afraid he was going to drown and I could not save him. But not only did he make it, he shamed the older boys into doing it themselves.


The tale of Chiselborough

 Our second dog sit in England this past month was in Chiselborough. Which is a village of about 100 - 125. It was in the middle of nowhere....
