While drinking the morning coffee, we decided to go on a winter hike to Ratitovec. We went with cars to the small village of Prtovc, where we parked, and heading on the left side of hill we continued under the power lines up to the ridge. The whole description is on Prtovč – Krekova koča na Ratitovcu (čez Po(v)den).
First part was quite dry, but then it got a little snowy and icy. It was a good thing we had our walking sticks with us, otherwise it’s quite difficult. Weather was great, although a little cloudy and windy, but hey-it’s the end of December, so… After an hour of slowly going up, we saw the Ratitovec lodge, with the vies of the surrounding hills all sunny and sparkling.
We went down on another path-so it was a circled hike. It was very slippery and icy, because it is mostly in the shadows throughout the winter.
Merry Christmas and happy new year!
