Triglav

Last Saturday I decided on a whim to climb Triglav, Slovenian highest mountain. Having explored quite a few hiking trails as well as ferratas in the Slovenian Alps, I've wanted to try the Plemenice route for a long, long time but never really got round to doing it. I called my brother to ask him to come with me, prepared my backpack and set the alarm clock for 2.30 a.m. And off we went! Our climb started at 5 a.m. in the Vrata valley and took us to Luknja and across Plemenice to the top. We descended to Kredarica and then chose the Prag route back to Vrata where we sat down for some beer at 7 p.m. Oh wow, what an exhilarating day! My knees hurt as hell, but my soul was in heaven.

Just one photo for now, more about the climb, including pictures, after August 10 when I get back from a photo tour around the Balkans! :)

Hej.
Super.
Kk je pot čez Plamenice?
Sam se v kratkem odpravljam gor po tej poti (že nisem šel, pa me kot hribovca zanima, kok zgleda...).

Aleksander, thanks!

Andrej, hvala! Pot čez Plemenice je super, na trenutke zelo zračna, ampak nič prehudega. Razgledi so fantastični. Priporočam čelado, ker leti dol precej kamenja.

Jaz pa nestrpno čakam na ostale fotke iz serije... Ne bodi zlobna, saj čakanje ubija, he he.

Hehe, jaz pa zlobna? :))) V resnici sem ravnokar prišla s krajšega potepanja po ex Jugi, tako da poleg Triglava čaka na obdelavo en kup fotk. Se bom potrudila, da bodo čim prej. Ampak tebe sem pa pozabila škljocniti! ;)

Hec mora biti, fotke pa tudi... in to kmalu :)) Jah, po mojem sva oba bila začudena nad nepričakovanim obiskom, da na fotoaparat niti pomislila nisva. Bo treba na kakšno skupno spoznavno gorsko fototuro, saj vem, da takrat ne bom preganjan, vsakič ko fotoaparat na plano povlečem :))

Z veseljem! September in oktober sta krasna meseca za v gore.
