Autumn sunset on the summit of Jahňací štít (2229 m) in Slovak Tatra Mountains.

English traveller Robert Townson bagged this peak in 1793 and had similar luck with the weather: "The day was delightful: I had a fine view from hence of the surrounding alps: these are so much higher than the mountains to the east and west, which form part of the Carpathian chain, that they seem to be only one huge cluster of alps. I had a fine view likewise of Galicia: it is commonly reported, and given as an indication of their great height, that from these alps, Cracow may be seen in the north, and Erlau in the south. I imagine they ought to have said, that from these two distant cities these mountains may be seen; and this would be very probable." (Travels in Hungary, with a short account of Vienna in the year 1793, London 1797).
