Without the haze, this would be ...and the Tara Canyon zigzagging down there somewhere, the Serbian border isn't far off either.








Happy for a day-"off" and a bit of a breather, the girls have stayed at the Quarters, Goodie taking the camera for a walk around Nedajno.

Just 50m down the road, a view into the Gorge....THAT is what the road is build into!! Down one side...and up the other



































...while we're hanging out for a coffee in Zabljak, it's been a quite intense two-and-a-half hours.
Crna Gore = the local name for Montenegro = Black Mountain.

Barely into the afternoon and we already leave the P5 highway for the single-laners...and the P14 across the bottom end of the Durmitor N.P. turns into an absolute DREAM of a road!!
Scenery to make you gasp, the tiny band of asphalt following the lumps and bumps of the bare Alpine meadows with weird-shaped rockfaces above...not a soul around anywhere....just yourself and 60k's of heaven.


After 16 days on the road through a good handful of countries and many places to leave me speechless....this is Aladdin's Cave!
To me...this was the top-run of the entire trip. The place, the atmosphere, the light, the remoteness....this was : Right time, perfect spot!!"
Just let the pics tell the story....

Some outstanding side-roads as well, well worth having a look!















Towards Pluzine to top up the tanks, grab a cuppa and do a little shopping...






Pitch-black, rough hewn..."where the heck is the road??"...and...oops, there's an intersection as well....
