Julian Alps, Slovenia
Rick Steves suggests a great one-day driving tour through the Julian Alps in his Slovenia and Croatia guidebook. We were stunned by the natural surroundings and sight of trees on the cusp of changing into their autumn colors. This postcard picture was taken from a rather precarious suspension bridge, but any fears of personal safety were quickly displaced by a complete sense of awe. For dinner this night, we took a quick detour into Italy, just to add another country to our growing count.
