Turquoise river

There is a turquoise river valley not far from home. Beautiful in all seasons. Sometimes dangerous caught between the narrow rock walls at other places quietly peaceful.

At the entrance to the valley on the beautiful autumn day



As we go deeper to the walley



We see a series of unforgettable views and ride along the beautiful winding road



will continue

You're welcome. Every part of the world is hiding some beauty which is waiting to be discovered. . All we need are wide-open eyes.

Then I came to the part of the valley, where the rock walls the are just one meter apart with a roaring river between them. Place is equipped with wooden fences and stairs to prevent accidental falls.

At the end of the valley the shadows became long, visitors were mostly gone





And the last view of the turquoise river, along which I rode all the time



Maybe I should avoid shadows and go up the hill

Very diverse region indeed. I didn't show you pannonian part yet, all southern part with their warm rivers, styrian, few lakes ...Some of that parts will probably get on schedule next year, this season is more or less over for motorcycling although we have some very warm days in front of us.

So I went up the hill where shadows are equally long but they are falling onto the poor souls in the valleys

Just a teaser for a new story

Soon I came to the first huts. It's amazing how suddenly has changed my perception of the world and time as soon as I moved away from the lowlands. It's incredible different world up there with huts, cows, mountaineers...



Houses are covered with shingles, in fact, they're whole coated with shingles.

Good Stuff!

A few years back I spent 5 fantastic days riding in the Alps & Bavaria on a hired 640 supermoto, I went over the Felbertauern & Grossglocker, so your pics bring back some memories. When I did the Grossglockner it was late in the season & almost closed for snow, there was hardly anybody around.

I look forward to riding there again one day, & checking out some of Eastern Europe. Looking at the map the part of the Alps I saw was such a small chunk, so much interesting country stretches out all around as your report shows.

Cheers
Clint

Contact me when you will be in the planning phase. I can give you some hint at least for the south-eastern part of the Alps, Adriatic coast....
