Aleš had a birthday yesterday, so he invited us for Sunday lunch. We decided to spice things up a little, so we went on a nice hike, starting from Tržič, 516 m, to our first peak Kamnek, 873 m. Pirmance ridge took us further to Veliki vrh above Završnik, 968 m. We continued to the highest point of the day, Zavetišče na Kalu, 1112 m, where we had a nice snack on the Sun. We descended to Dolina and through Dovžan Gorge we returned back to Tržič.

Through another forest section to Zavetišče na Kalu.
It would be nice to have a slide leading back to the valley.
|No wonder we had to wait for them all the time.|
We followed the local stream Kališnik that joins Tržič Bistrica.
|It's almost April 1st, so the path is almost open.|
|Scenery in Dovžan Gorge, protected as a natural monument in 1988 due to its status as a unique site of plant and animal fossils in rocks from the Paleozoic.|

|The picturesque gorge was formed by the Tržič Bistrica River cutting through various conglomerates, limestones, sandstones, and clays. The gorge contains the largest series of barrier waterfalls in Slovenia, formed from quartz conglomerate.|
