In The Alps Above Slovenia
One of the things to do while staying in Lake Bled or Ljubljana is a drive up into the alps and Triglav National Park. There are over 50 switchbacks, each one numbered and with precise distance markings. After leaving the park I made it back to Bled on twisty, narrow mountain roads. For a 20k section the power steering in my rented VW stopped working, rendering the vehicle almost undrivable. I asked the rental company for an exchange car, but they would not give me one without charge, their excuse being the power steering started working again.
“The Bells” reminded me of the famous Maroon Bells outside of Aspen, Colorado. The Skiers were getting ready to hike up the snow covered mountain to make a downhill run. That is dedication.
For a while I took off my trusted 24-120 f/4 VR zoom and shot with an ultra wide 20 f/2.8 AF both on a Nikon D800.
