A DAY IN THE JULIAN ALPS
Our one splurge this trip was hiring a private guide, recommended by Rick Steves, to take us on a day trip through the Julian Alps. Our guide, Gorazd, told us he did the same tour yesterday, and it rained all day in the mountains. We were very lucky to go today. I will let the pictures tell the story.

peril from snipers across the way
