Lanski vrh


38378. Janko was logging away the spruces downed by the latest windy storm. In his own words - what is left will be demolished by the spruce bark beetle (Ips typographus).



Članska vas Village


38380. Jerko with a welcoming heart from the back side of the door



38381. Mare, who just returned from the bucket pull-out duty at the cave entrance, and Žan engaged in a conversation about a tricky subject, with Jerko in the backdrop

Cave Entrance

38385. Gregor is carving one more step below the 2 m vertical jump, to facilitate the ascent (and the descent).

38387. Manč managed to bring another bucket from the bottom, and will take the two empty ones back with him



38388. The photographer also makes a small contribution to the bucket duty. As he passes members of the team on his way down the rocks continue to move up with as little interruption as possible (photo by Brajko).

38396. Žan was showing Mare and Jerko a photo on his phone.



38397. Gregor is collecting the remaining embers from the open fire - Jerko will put them below the barbecue grid.



38398. Metod brought some baked pork from the store, plus some add ons, especially the (inevitable) Kozel (He-goat) Czech premium dark beer.



38399. A simpler snack: goat yogurt, corn bread, beetroot salad, apple compote



38400. Why bother with lesser quality food? Gregor brought home made beef tripe stew.



38401. When the hunger is quenched ...



38402. ... everything goes much more easily: Gregor (hands only), Metod, Manč, Mare and Brajko.
