Frozen pond amidst shepherds settlement

An easy Saturday walk, starting from the parking above Volovljek pass. This is a pleasant, short hike through the forest and then it opens up to the views of shepherds huts on Mala planina. At the moment there was a small frozen pond there, inviting us to play. Continuing up, we passed two mountain huts and arrived to the highest point of the day – the famous chapel of Marija Sneลพna ( Mary of snow )

Added: Two days after this hike Sunny kid broke her arm while snowboarding. Nothing serious, but we will be taking a rest, so that little bone comes back together as it is supposed to. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Little setback, but we will make it up ๐Ÿ™‚
