Today we picked up a rental car and headed for the mountains! As with many rentals, we got something bigger than we reserved because that was what they had...it's not too big though, and so far it has treated us well. Grant is getting back into the hang of driving a stick shift and Bonnie is navigating us through the mountain roads. The scenery today was just beautiful. So much green!

Before touring Soca River Valley we stopped to see woman's face on the mountain, a Russian church, a former largest ski flying jump at Kranjaska Gora (near Italian border), and sampled blueberry "blintz". Group dinner in Kobarid. Trout, pasta, ice cream w/pumpkin seed oil. Buddy talks.
