Up Říp

En route to and up the trails of Říp–the hard-to-pronounce title of a folkloric Czech mountain that’s sometimes referred to as a hill–I was:

riptown
Taken to what was claimed to the lowest lookout tower in Czech lands to look out into the Polabske lowland’s nearby town Roudnice nad Labem.

rip

island
Led along the roads that ran through pastoral fields to pass by a noticeably little island within a little pond.

lowlands
Exposed to the scale of the rolling lowlands.

factory
Shown a set of distant smokestacks towering above the agrarian stretches.

rooftops
Reminded, at an unobstructed outlook just below Říp’s shortish summit, of the subtle contrast of reddish rooftops against autumn landscapes’ even subtler tones.
