Jasna up towards Vitranc
Kranjska Gora
Slovenia
Distance 7km Climb 300m
Monday 24 August 2015

I have set up Facebook and Twitter accounts if you would like to receive updates on my walks.

Today it was damp when we walked passed Zlatorog.  Just down from Zlatorog is a path that takes you up the side of a mountain, so we thought we would go and see how far up we would get. No pressure just a gentle walk, if it was too rough or Anne's foot hurt we would turn back, the mountain would still be there for another day.


The path starts climbing gently then starts twisting and turning the higher we climbed. We could see Frank and Maggie's Pension Milka through the trees. Although it was raining it was too warm to walk in our waterproof coats.


Every now and again outcrops of rock allowed us to look down into the Mala Pisnica and see the height we had gained.




As the trail turned north we could see over Kranjska Gora despite the rain and lowering of the cloud.



We had reached a junction where we could climb and cross a scree slope or turn left for a steeper climb, today this was far enough so we turned back and headed down hill.  In parts the path was made slippery due to the wet, we were tripping over tree roots so it was sensible.



On our return to the bottom we walked into town and had a beer and cake, before returning to the Pension Milka. In all we had covered approx 7km with a 300m climb.

Later in the week I did get to the top of Vitranic you can see my walk there by following the link.
