The Vanishing Road


It's not hard to go on a road trip, when there is an actual road to travel on. This weekend I went on, what turned out to be, a very short car drive. After arriving in the Rujiste Mountains (which takes 30 minutes driving from Mostar), my goal was to travel the newly built road to the Boracko Lake, which is located in the plains of the mountain Prenj. But, as it turned out the road was unfinished, and so was my road trip.

But of course, that didn't stop me from venturing out. My dog Beni was with me. We parked the car and made a hike into the surrounding woods.

These here are just preview images of this new series. In the first shot you can see the road I was (shortly) traveling on.

 The beautiful, autumn woods, greeted us for a hike.


In the photo series, I will show you more from the dead end I encountered.


The valley of the Rujiste mountain.


 And there will be lots of images from the deep woods.


I hope to see you back tomorrow for the first part.
Have a great Sunday!

    1. I knew the road wasn't completely paved all the way to the lake, but I really expected it to go on longer and not end the way it did. But you will see what I encountered. :)

  5. That road looks like it cuts through some beautiful mountain sides. Will construction continue on this road, but does it just end? Yes, always good to have a plan B. You must have had a great walk in the woods from your photos.

    1. Don't say that. :) With practice comes success. If you want it you will achieve it. And before this turns into a motivational speech, just look at my images from 2008 and you'll be more confident! :)

    1. I'm definitely sure it will. But the sights I saw from the little bit of road I was traveling on were also very good. But more on that in the new photo series. Thanks Dorothy for visiting.

  19. Running out of road at least provided a great post. The pictures are very good, they're what I call 'refreshing' to the mind.

  20. That is land made for hiking! Wow!

  21. Roads like this are the best for great photos! Some of our 'state highways' are made of dirt! I love your forest shots a lot.
