Karavanke mountains form a natural border between Slovenia and Austria.
We started the hike at Ljubelj pass, which is also a border crossing between the two countries.
A mountain hut named "Dom na Zelenici" is shown next - it's a very popular destination just a short walk away from Ljubelj.
We didn't stop for long at the hut - we just continued towards the summit of Vrtača.
Our dog Bučko found a patch of snow just below the summit, to cool down a little.
It was a great day in the Alps, with perfectly clear blue skies.
