Some catching up

The view of the Austrian Alps from where we had dinner in Salzburg 
Just one of the incredible waterfalls in Plitvice National Park in Croatia

A view of  the ancient walled city of Dubrovnik, Croatia on the Adriatic Coast.
We've  returned from three weeks in Europe to find hiking season in full swing.
This week we tried to atone for our absence by two trips into the Highwoods, one into Glacier Park's eastside portals and a Wayne's Wednesday Walk climb of Wind Peak in the Rocky Mountain Front northwest of Choteau on the edge of the Bob Marshall.
Not that we weren't getting plenty of exercise in the countries formerly known as Yugoslavia;  Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina and Montenegro, along with Slovakia and Austria.
We hiked in the amazing waterfall national park in Croatia, the Plitvice and along the Dalmatian Coast of the Adriatic Sea.
And in spite of the marvelous scenery and history of these alpine countries, we felt our own Montana scenery, particularly the Rocky Mountain Front, held up admirably well.
That's Ear Mountain on way down from Wind Mountain top in Front

Old Baldy in Front still has plenty of snow
