One day trip: Šmarjetna gora/ Saint Marjeta hill

We are enjoying some great weather these past few weeks, with plenty of sunshine and low temperatures.

As my dearest is off skiing for the ski season opening, I am home alone with boys. Spending time outdoors and in nature is very important for me, more so that kids don stay in too much as the tension starts to rise after a while. And as I am more staying in kind of girl and would rather stay at home doing many things that I find joy in, I had to make sure we go outside too.

Normally I choose playground or walk in the near by canyon of Kokra, this time I've decided to take boys for a hike.

I never went for a hike alone with the kids as I'm not in to good of a shape (let's admit it), at least not in the one where I could carry a child or two upwards. 

But boys are older and not to mention they have a great deal of energy to go with and walked like it was a nice stole in the park. (The older one likes going to the mountains anyway.) And it was great!

A surprising attraction. can you guess what it is?
The hike wasn't too difficult and not too long ether. There are few paths leading to the top of Šmarjetna gora with different rate of difficulty and steepness, but none of them is too hard.

Šmarjetna gora offers a nice hike when there is no time or willingness for real mountaineering. Together with Jošt, St. Peter and Stari grad (Old castle) it is one of the most popular (family) hikes in the surroundings of Kranj.
