My first night of camping in Transylvania was a success! The following morning I broke camp and cycled just 1 km from my campsite to beautiful Lake Rausor. On the dam at the southern end of the lake I snapped these photos of me, my touring bicycle, and the beautiful fall colors. The best thing about my time at Lake Rausor was that I had the entire place to myself. There wasn’t another soul in sight. After more than an hour at the lake I cycled downhill, back the way I came, got some food at the supermarket in Campulung, and then began my long up and downhill ride toward the city of Bran.
