About our trek.
We left Krakow (Poland) at 1.30 on Thursday. We reached Aljazev Dom (1002m) in Vrata Valley in Slovenia about 12.30. Then we started our trek. About 18.30 we reached Triglavski Dom na Kredarici (2515) where we have slept. On Friday we woke up at 5.00, and after six we started to attack our goal summit of Triglav (2864m). We reached it after about 1,5 hours. Then we went down do the valley and started at 18.30 our way back to Poland. We reached Krakow about 3.30 on Saturday.
Incredible experience. Beautiful Julian Alps and national mountain of Slovenia - Triglav!!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Julian Alps (Slovene: Julijske Alpe, Italian: Alpi Giulie) are a mountain range of the Southern Limestone Alps that stretches from northeastern Italy to Slovenia, where they rise to 2,864 m at Mount Triglav. They are named after Julius Caesar, who founded the municipium of Cividale del Friuli at the foot of the mountains. A large part of the Julian Alps is included in Triglav National Park.
Triglav (German: Terglau, Italian: Tricorno) is with its elevation of 2,864 metres (9,396 ft) the highest mountain in Slovenia and the highest peak of the Julian Alps. The mountain is the preeminent symbol of the Slovene nation. It is the centerpiece of Triglav National Park, Slovenia's only national park.

Hi Maciej,beautiful mountains whit the soft clouds as the cherry in the cake,very bright details and perfect exposure as usual,Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hi Maciej,

The tight frame is putting the mountains in evidence. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colours of the mountains. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

The mountains are different ALL the time and i just adore them!!!!!

Hi Maciej
說真得要照這大的範圍的雄山 不簡單
山底下的綠意 和山巔的灰冷色 表示山很高聳
我喜歡它的雲 不知有神仙住在雲裡沒有
中國的傳說 越高的山 會有靈氣上面會住著修道人 那天修道人就會成神仙

It is a very rugged looking terrain at this time of the year, Maciej. Those dark grey rocks with some small glaciers between them look forbidding. The wisp of grey cloud floating above them is the special element in this image.
Thanks and regards.
