Soca River Valley
KIM: On the way down the Soca Valley side of the Vrsic Pass, the river is a beautiful shade of milky turquoise. We stopped to check out this narrow passage that kayakers love. A few miles further on, the river is dammed and forms a large reservoir, but retains the amazing color. The second photo is the diving platform at Most na Soca (bridge over the Soca). I believe that Saso told me the platform is 10 or 12 meters above the water, and that the youngest jumper was 7 years old and the oldest was 70. The Soca River, in case you hadn't guessed, is the high-adventure watersports capital of Slovenia. Tomorrow I will walk around Lake Bled and visit the castle and the island church before leaving Bled for Planina and Postojna, where I hope to find Urbas and Brencic relatives.
