Slovenia: Weekly Hike: Šmarna gora

With our sport and cultural society ŠKD Indijanci (Indians), that we established at work, we decided to hike every Tuesday morning before work all the way till new year and therefore we would have enough fitness to conquer Kredarica, one of our high altitude mountain huts. For our first hike we chose the most popular hill in Ljubljana, Šmarna gora.

Slovenia: New Rabbits and Bicycle Trip at the foothills of Košuta

In the morning I fed the animals on our farm and while I was giving some food to our momma rabbit, I noticed, that she gave birth to new ones, don't know how many, since you're not supposed to touch them for some time.

Our 1st and 2nd generation of rabbits from momma rabbit

The weather was nice and not too cold, so I decided to do some pedalling, the plan was to go to Planina Dolga Njiva, 1400 m a.m.s.l.

Scenic road through Dovžanova gorge, protected natural monument. read more at this link.

Tržiška Bistrica river

Many options. I chose the left.

We walked on that ridge in the summer. This time I chose the paths beneath Košuta.

My lunch, cabbage and žganci (national Slovene dish)

My Snow White didn't complain

My last destination, Kofce, was still far away

Bicycle Trip at the foothills of Košuta mountain ridge. Definitely worth repeating.

Croatia: Concrete works @ Weekend House

There is always something to do around the weekend house, if you have it, so sometimes it is better if you don't, but since work and pleasure walk hand in hand sometimes, the first option is better.

This time we decided to build concrete stairs towards the storage room.

Aleš, me and our supervisor at work - hand made concrete

Job done 

There is a lot of rose hip bushes around the area, so we picked them up

Slovenia: Installing Ultrasonic Flow Meter

My friend Aleš needed to measure water flow at his Hydro Power Station. We bought a Flow Meter TUF-2000M from ebay and today I successfully installed. First results are above expectations, the meter is really measuring and within tolerances.

Another good buy on ebay

Slovenia: Hike to Kramarica

My friend Vizo called me yesterday and we decided to conquer local peak, called Kramarica. There is actually no track leading up there, so you have to improvise a lot on the way, especially on the top of the ridge and on the descent on the northern slope.

Straight up 

The ridge is somewhere behind those rocks and trees

View from the top to Šentanska valley (where I live)

On the left Košutica and on the right Veliki vrh. Our way led us towards Veliki Vrh, but we turned left half way, since this is the only known way down.

View to the West. In the clouds Begunjščica and Vrtača.

Through here or not?

Is this the point to go down or it's a little bit further to the east?

This is it. Down here.

Our descent

Last difficult part

We came down this way

Time for a break

Kramarica for the first time

Slovenia: Hike to Bistriška planina

Kids from schools in Tržič had their monthly hike. This time they chose the nearby hill, Bistriška planina. I joined my sister Andreja and her daughter Klara on this easy hike.
