For Olympia - ♥thank you♥


The Julian Alps
Photo taken exactly two years ago during our stay in Kranjska Gora.  Kranjska Gora is located in the Upper Sava Valley in the far northwest of Slovenia. It borders Austria and Italy, both of which are within good walking distance.

    1. Dear Mark - your Swiss ancestors would have been familiar with views very similar to this. It is the sort of view that you just want to absorb and never forget.
