A few km’s after leaving Skloniste Miroslav Hirtz (stage 7) the fun started again. Fallen trees, an overgrown trail, searching for way markers – or all three combined. I bet there aren’t a lot of hikers using this trail! Hiking it solo, sliding over rocks, climbing over or under trees, head-high bushes, hidden rocks under the growth, checking the GPS – it slowed me down a lot.

wp-1466268995711-1.jpgAfter hitting the road and seeing the run down mountain hut, kuća Stalak, (probably meaning that there isn’t a lot of hiking going on around here) an almost empty food bag and another 30km to hike I decided to hitch to the town of Senj and skip the remainder of stage 8 and stage 9.
Hitching at this empty road took me an hour, and I was lucky the girls in first car driving by gave me a ride.
