54) A trip around Lake Bled - 04/Jul/2015

Another video from Bled, showing a trip around the lake with my son. 
It's a pleasant stroll, but this time we took our bicycles.
I posted similar videos before because we keep returning to Bled - it's one of the most popular spots in the country for a reason.
The video shows a wedding party, sailing across the lake in pletna boats, on their way to the island.
The view of Bled castle on the cliff was not at its best, due to a crane, but that's OK.

The video shows scenes from Lake Bohinj in Triglav National Park.
A lot of fish, a couple of ducks, and a silly little dog.

52) Vrata valley - 01/Jul/2015

This video shows a family hike in the Vrata valley, in Triglav National Park.
We started the hike near the base of the north face of Triglav, which is a sheer 1000 m wall rising steeply from the valley floor.
The video begins by the monument dedicated to fallen mountaineers - resistance fighters in World War II.
From the monument, we follow the "Pot Triglavske Bistrice" trail, passing by the "Aljažev dom" mountain hut.
Various scenes from the hike come next, and in the end you can see the Peričnik waterfall.

51) From Zelenci to Mojstrana by bicycles (again) - 30/Jun/2015

We did the same bicycle trip back in 2013, so it was high time to do it again.
The bike trail from Zelenci to Mojstrana is one of the nicer bike paths in Slovenia, right on the edge of Triglav National Park, with full view of high peaks such as Ponca, Prisank, Razor, Špik and Triglav.
This time around, the video shows more action scenes on our bikes, and the weather is sunnier.
It again begins at Zelenci, the source of Sava Dolinka river.
You can see a couple of rest stops along the way, and the final part shows mountains above Kranjska gora (Razor and Prisank) and Gozd Martuljek (the Špik group).

50) Peca - 21/Jun/2015

Peca is a prominent peak in the Karavanke mountain range, right on the border between Slovenia and Austria. The highest point is named Kordeževa glava (2125 m), and is easily accessible.
Peca is the easternmost peak in Karavanke higher than 2000 m.
The video begins at the mountain hut named "Dom na Peci" (1665 m), and then shows the ascend on the climbing trail.
The views from the summit of Kordeževa glava come next, followed by the descend via the regular hiking trail.
