Explorations in the Julian Alps

Mid August saw the intrepid Mountain House team taking off for our second trip to Slovenia. This time we headed north of Triglav, using the stunning Vrata valley as our base. Our evenings were spent gazing at the north wall of Triglav, as the setting sun turned the rock red. We also managed some great and adventurous walking ahead of Jane's IML summer assessment the following week.

Highlights of the trip included; beautiful and varied mountain scenery, exposed, but well protected mountain paths, scrambling behind the pericnik waterfall, too many gentians to really appreciate, being told by the ladies at the Aljazev Dom that we were their best guests, finding the Pension Stare at Bohinj, and of course last but by no means least, Jane passing the IML summer assessment!
