Last signs of winter

Couple of weeks ago we went to a Saidės sightseeing path, where we found slowly melting snow and ice near a Moluvenė streamlet, which runs into bigger Neris river. This path is special in one thing – to get to it you have to go through abandoned rehab camp, whose one building is inhabited by people.

That night we set off for abandoned rehab center “Aušveita”. The result wasn’t very pleasing, because not only that one building was occupied and light was coming from the windows, something near it was blinking red, so we thought that the area was guarded. We went around it and down to the Neris riverside, where huge ice debris (aprox. 1,5m in height) was lying. This photo was taken on top of one of those ice blocks. The light on horizon is coming from Vilnius which is ~20km from there.
