This post is a continuation of the previous “Jõesuu, Rõngu, Otepää, Pühajärve, Kääriku, Harimäe” post: Jõesuu, Rõngu, Otepää, Pühajärve, Kääriku, Harimäe vol. 1
From the central square of Otepää I went by the energy pillar. The pillar and the Otepää Gymnasium nearby are in the pictures.
Then I drove to the Tehvandi ski jumping tower. Fortunately, one can get there by car, because I wouldn’t have wanted to climb all that way.
I also took pictures with camera and drone there.
When the pictures had been taken and the surroundings explored, I drove to Tehvandi Stadium. There I flew the drone again.
I then went to Pühajärve, or rather first to the garden town of Otepää and from there to Pühajärve. It was relatively cold there compared to other places. Strong and cold winds blew. I walked in the park, took pictures here and there. I also flew the drone again.
Then the trip continued to Kääriku. The road that leads from Pühajärve to Kääriku is quite cool. Up and down, left and right. In short, great and beautiful.
At Kääriku, people were busy doing sports. Different groups of athletes were mainly involved in running. I got my pictures taken and moved on.
The road continued towards Harimägi lookout tower. I didn’t climb the tower this time. But I still took pictures, with a drone.
When the visti to Harimägi was over, it was already 5 pm. This meant that there was still 1 hour and 10 minutes to sunset. During that time, I had to get to Lake Pangodi to take pictures of a nice road there.
From Harimägi, I went back using a different road. First back to Kääriku, from there to Sihva. But now I turned to the side road to approach Otepää along the eastern shore of Lake Pühajärv. For those who have not used this road, I definitely recommend it, because it is a very nice and beautiful one.
Before the trip toward home started, a made a small detour to the Hotel Bernhard, which had burned down a few years ago.
Then the way home began. In the meantime, another stop at Tamsa, where I captured the Kindralimägi memorial.
Next to it, however, is a very unique path, which I also captured. In general, the weather had been cloudy that day, but when I started photographing this road during sunset, the sun came out once and gave the picture very cool colors.
When the pictures had been taken, the way home began. The drive was about 3 hours long. Daylight was replaced by darkness, and when I arrived in Tartu, it was already completely dark. In addition, it started to rain a little.
Such was the trip to Tartu and Valga County this time. It was a long day, but there was a lot to see, and there was no shortage of pleasant memories.
