Instead, we drove down the Vrsic Pass, stopping at the Kugy Monument at Switchback #48. He's looking up to Jalovec, his favorite mountain.
Dr. Julius Kugy was a mountaineer and botanist who was born in Italy but wrote books in German about alpine flora.
From the monument, we hiked down to the river and followed it to the Mlinarica Gorge.
It was a beautiful hike and not too strenuous.
