Slovenia: Hike & Fly - Zavetišče v Hudičevem borštu

Before work our work society ŠKD Indijanci organised a breakfast in the mountains. Rok and me decided to fly back to the valley from there, while all others decided to stay home in warm bed.

We started with the hike at 5 a.m., still in the dark, but we advanced quite quick, and in hour and a half we were at our hiking destination, Zavetišče v Hudičevem borštu, 1328 m.

After we found a GeoCache, we checked the wind and the conditions were good (no wind at all), so we prepared our paragliders and took off. In the air it was a little bit turbulent, but since it was still early, not too much. After a little more than 10 minutes we landed in Preddvor.

We packed our gear and it was work time.

Devil's forest has a very interesting story how it was crated. The legend says that two farmers quarrelled over who owned  the forest. Finally one of them said: May the devil take it! The devil immediately put the forest on his shoulders and rushed towards Zaplata. Daylight caught him midway. The devil dropped the forest in the middle of the hill, where it still lies today.
