Slovenia: Hike to Grintovec

Independence and Unity Day (Slovene: Dan samostojnosti in enotnosti) is a Slovenian national holiday that occurs on every 26 December to commemorate the official proclamation of the Slovenian independence referendum on 26 December 1990. Since it's a work free day, Nada and me went hiking, our destination Grintovec, at 2,558 metres, the highest mountain in the Kamnik–Savinja Alps. We started the hike from Dom v Kamniški Bistrici mountain hut, at 600 meters and over Cojzova koča na Kokrskem sedlu mountain hut we reached the windy and snowy peak after a couple of hours.

Weather was changing all the time
