Field of Dreams

Today another epic bike tour was on the menu. 75km around and over Senjsko Bilo, northern most part of Velebit, seen in the background, with almost 1500m of elevation gain and loss.

 

Pattern all too common these day was in play yet again. Strong west wind was piling up the clouds on Velebit, while here on the continental side it acted as a foehn, or chinook in the Rockies.

 

While up there it was chilly, windy and quite wet, here in the valley warm wind pushed temps to pleasant 15°C.

 

Before hitting those dark slopes it was real joy to ride over Kompolje, for me one of most beautiful karst fields in Lika. Clouds torn to pieces, once over the mountain, created beautiful shadows/lights atmosphere.
