Članska vas Village


41749. Radošca 92 did not include digging in the cave, it was all about preparing the firewood for the coming winter excursions. The summer heat luckily melted the tiles of the shingle roof slightly, just enough to make it waterproof again. Bur the firewood is another matter, an essential necessity for the winter. So 8 members of the team acccumulated, and cut to about 1 m length, this pile of trunks, fallen by the February 2014 frozen rain disaster and left to rot in the forest.

The Trail to Skednena jama Cave


41752. A most welcome collateral effect of the day was a long overdue clearing of the trail to Skednena jama. It was Žan's initiative and Gregor did the hard work. In the picture - what looked like this on November 18, 2017, is now a widely open passage.



41753. A bit further down the trail several spruce trunks that broke down past autumn after they lost the treetops in 2014 clogged the trail and the underbrush quickly overgrew what was always a nice clean, dry leaves-covered track. Now it is easily passable again.



41755. The final passage before the trail junction. A few dry spruce trunks are still standing, potential victims of the next wind storm.
