We have some great weather here in Slovenia, especially for visiting the mountains.
Yesterday I decided to visit a high mountain named Krn.
I went to the store and bought two bottles of water and two Milka chocolates with walnuts. I put some spare clothes in my backpack too.
Krn's western side. This photo was taken in the spring when the snow was still present.
Today at six in the morning I started my adventure from the south side from the parking lot at 950 m above sea level.
The left red line is Krn and the right is Botognica.
The first photo after a half an hour walk.
Sunrise in the mountains is spectacular.
Not on the photo tho.
It's still calm and foggy down in the valley.
After one hour and a half, I was sweating like a: you pick the word for the animal.
The cottage or shelter was a bit closer.
Sheep crossed my path. They were curious but shy.
On the edge of the cliff.
After I passed the shelter there were just 10 more minutes to the top.
In the lower left corner, you can see the line of the barns from the third photo. Just to get the impression of how high I climbed.
Here's the proof.
And the reward. View to the north side of the lake at the bottom and a sip of homemade brandy.
A hint of art.
I was proud of my achievement and then I spotted this pair of domestic sheep grazing on the slope. Crazy!
We, humans, are soo weak and vulnerable.
I marked for you the highest mountain in Slovenia.
We call it Triglav which means three head.
Just a last look to the valley and that's all for today.
It took me three hours of walk to the top. On my activity tracker, it showed I walked 5.3 kilometres and climbed 1300 meters of altitude difference.
Stay tuned for more, my friends.
