The day was overcast and the tops hidden in the cloud, but it was still mild and no evidence it was going to rain. So, I drove way up past several small villages to a car park at Planina Kuhinja at 990m.
From there it was a matter of following a marked path that traversed back and forth up the hillside mainly through meadows. and over bits of limestone until reaching the cloud level at around 1700m. The path continued to traverse and the going got rougher as the amount of exposed limestone increased. And I resigned myself to a day with no views.

I picked my way back down to the refuge by a slightly different route and found an entrance to a human-made cave that went through the hillside and came out on the other side over a very steep face.

If you want to know more about the battle front, try Mark Thompson 'The White war' (2009) and, of course, Ernest Hemingway's personal account 'A farewell to arms' (1929). It is chilling and sobering to learn about the carnage that took place.
