One Day Trip: Mount Mangart

What a day!

The weather forecast wasn't optimistic for the past weekend so the planes that my boys had - to climb to the highest pic in Slovenia mount Triglav (2864 m) was cancelled.

On Saturday morning, however, we woke up to a beautiful, sunny morning so my oldest was devastated. He is a true mountaineer. As to climb Triglav takes two days (O.K., O.K. some do it in one), that wasn't possible anymore, so we had to come up with a solution.

Normally I let my boys hiking around themselves. Giving birth to two children was also the best excuse my laziness could get for avoiding hiking in a big circle. And only now I come to realise that maybe that wasn't such a good idea. I used to hike a lot. I come from a family that spent weekends and holidays going to the mountains.
