Durmitor

Unable to go over the higher passes of Durmitor due to the snow, I was left with the only other option and to follow several canyons leading up to the plateau beneath the impressive peaks of Durmitor and the town of Zabljak.

Can’t help it but by now the emptiness and isolated nature of mountains around Durmitor are becoming one of my recurring themes. The ride was stunning, taking me into Durmitor National Park via a long plateau of highland meadows and old Yugoslav monuments. I’d have stayed a while longer had the clouds not closed in and hurried me along to the town of Zabljak.

As it turned out the rains continued relentlessly making Ivan do & my tent my home for the next few days.

This welcome break gave me time to contemplate and read while listing to the wind and rain beating down hard on my tent. So far she’s holding out well.
