Photo Challenge #Names – 18 Tunel

I stumbbled upon this:Photo Challenge

Names

Humans love naming things — look around you, and I bet you’ll see dozens of names. This week, take a photo of one!

By Michelle W.

The idea is to find some interesting photo taken by mobile phone or camera and to write a post to this Weekly Challenge. I had something else in my mind, but Friday will come in less than 30 minutes… so the challenge is almoust over.

I like taking photos, especially unusual ones, and that is why it is so hard to find the one that I am looking for. Actually, looking at all of this photos… if they were all in printed version, my room will be “spaceless” 😉

So, to make things short… I have selected a photo taken in a monutain over Zagreb. The photo contains the name “18 Tunel” near the hiking sign. Here it is:

300620165822

This well-known hiking road 18 is pretty famous in Zagreb under the name “Bikčevićeva“.

You only need 5,93 km to make this climb that starts from the Tunel and with somewhere very scarp (>30%) ascent and ends at the “Puntijarka” – a hiking lodge.

The name comes from the man Tomislav Bikčević (1915-1986) that worked a lot on the forestation of the mountain Sljeme.

I guess when You are up there… it is very nice to know which Way is the shortest to take back to the Tunel… That’s why they named this tree… 18 Tunel.

So, this short story is only for the Photo-challenge  Names
