Moon over my favorite mystical mountain Malý Šišák.

         Last week I visited my favorite mountain hotel in the Giant Mounteins. The summit area of the Giant Mts. is a remote island of arctic and alpine tundra in Central Europe. Since the Glacial Period, its landforms,ground structures and treeless tundra communities are inhabited by plant and animal species surviving the short growing season in low temperatures and wind - induced habitats, and tolerating freeze and thaw cycles under shallow snowpack.

        This isolated island arctic - alpine tundra is located 2000 kilometers from the nearest tundra areas of Scandinavia and 450 km from the alpine tundra of the Alps and the Carpathians.
