Slovenia: Weekly Hike: Križna gora and Planica

Our sport and cultural society ŠKD Indijanci went on a thirteenth morning hike (17th overall). Our destinations were Križna gora, 680 m, and Planica, 824 m. Our starting point was Škofja Loka and the returning Crngrob. Although the Slovenian Environment Agency announced the red alert for the country, due to extreme weather conditions, we didn't give up and we started with our planned hike. We all came back safe and sound.

One of the rare signs on our today hike

We had to climb through and over the broken trees, that were still falling down because of the glaze ice.

Clumsy? No no, someone tripped her.

Descent down to Crngrob

So many churches today. This one is dedicated to the Annunciation.

Unfortunately some parts of Slovenia are still suffering the consequences of glazed ice. Click on THIS link, to see some amazing photos and what the nature is capable of doing. Our city Postojna was back in ice age for a couple of days.
