Woodcutter’s Hut

By the Trail through the Logar Valley, there is a woodcutter’s hut and beside it a wooden wood chute. In their vicinity, attentive observers can spot mule deer, and in the hut, they can experience the pleasant crackling of the fire burning in the open fireplace and the stories of the hard lives led by the forest workers.
 
Day after day, the foresters got up at dawn to work in the distant forests. Hard work using axes and handsaws, sleeping in bunk beds covered with bracken or leaves and simple food were constant companions for the foresters during the cutting and storing of wood. Wood was transported from the distant forests down into the valleys using wooden chutes, mostly during the winter. During spring, when the water levels were high due to the melting snow, they were floated down the Savinja to the sawmills. Once the wood had been cut, it was used to make rafts, which were then floated down the river.
