Move Me a River

edited March 6 in General

Oh, we had one of the best KAP sessions ever, and there is a cool story behind the photos ...

The hill above the village (with the church) hides a Roman marble quarry. When they discovered the marble seam, they realised they couldn't move the blocks to Emona (precursor of today's Ljubljana, Slovenia) because the Ljubljana Marshes were impassable on foot, and even building a road was out of the question.

So it seems they moved the whole river closer to the quarry! The old river channel is still visible, running about a mile north of the new, possibly Roman channel.

Check out the whole story (with more cool kite aerial photos) on our website! :-)
