The Sutjeska National Park in Bosnia

So, in going through some pictures, I saw these from Sutjeska National Park.

It is a National Park in Bosnia with some of the last old growth forest (as in never cut) in all of Europe. Of course, I didn't see that cuz you have to hike a long way to see it. But I did try through the gorgeous park.

One of the most interesting things is a monument created by Tito, celebrating the victory of the partisans over the Nazi's in WWII.  There are a few left through old Yugoslavia and they are a fascinating mix of communist brutalism and celebratory sculpture.

I like it. In leaving I also ran across goats and cows that wouldn't get out of the road!

No people with these cows, just the bells.
