With so much snow skiing is still possible at most Slovenian ski resorts. Because I hadn't skied on my home ski ground, Velika planina, for quite a few years, I decided to go there last Sunday, despite the fact that I had visited it many times this winter already. Velika planina is a place you can't easily get tired of! :)
Foto klub Koroška came for a visit to Foto klub Kamnik last Saturday, and the two clubs climbed Mt. Velika planina in the afternoon. It was good to exchange information and get together with like-minded people, plus it was a lot of fun! And Velika planina never fails in terms of photographer's heaven. :)
With the altitude of 1495 meters, Mali Golak is the highest summit (if we can call it that) of the Trnovski gozd plateau. Until a week ago I didn't even know it existed. :) I really need to explore this part of my country in a greater depth.
It was a nice hike through some beautiful beech forest with great views from the top - supposedly Mt. Blanc can be seen on a really clear day!
The sun kept inviting me out to the fresh air, and by 2 p.m. I was in my car driving towards Gorenjska. I didn't know where I was going and I turned off the highway instinctively and ascended towards the Ljubelj pass. I hiked up the Zelenica valley at the side of the ski run, hardly met anybody, and enjoyed the beautiful views. Oh and got whipped by the wind, of course. :)) On the way back I stopped by the Dolžanova soteska gorge and had a colorful sunset around Kranj.
