Soča River, Soča Front

Poking around the net today I found someone in Ilirsak Bistrica, Slovenia who turned me on to the Soča River. Pretty soon I was reading about the Soča Front, geocaching on the Soča, etc. What a beautiful river. The is in the Julian Alps, which looks like a beautiful place to travel. Who cares if there is wind on the coast for kite surfing? A mountain bike/kayaking/hiking trip in the limestone of the Julian Alps could be great.
Its amazing that I can look forward to a vacation in an area where only 90 years or so ago about 1,000,000 people died during WWI.
I found this photo through an account of action geocaching by a German geocaching club. Check out the page, its full of great stuff.
