I'm sure Brent is tired of me exclaiming "it's so pretty here!" after our ride today, but man... it was really pretty. Brent plotted us a
cross-country route since I don't like riding on highways. It was very very hilly, but man it was pretty. We started off heading straight west
of Verazdin toward Gornje Ladanje. We zig-zagged west and south through Kapelec, Brodarovec, Ribic Breg, Bedenec, dipping down to Lepoglava to
turn immediately northwest to Rinkovec, then a turn at Bednja to go through Sasa, Gornje Jesenje and finally to Krapina. It was a heck of a
climb to Gornje Jesenje, but it was worth it, and then after we left Gornje Jesenje, we gave up all the elevation we'd gained through the day.
It seemed like we went downhill forever before we finally reached Krapina. Krapina is smattered through a valley and up onto the sides of a
bunch of impossibly pointy hills. It's really pretty. My photos don't do the area justice... it's just one of those places. The best pictures
are in my head.
