The Ice Storm Aftermath

A walk through the park (Roznik) near Ljubljana a month after the ice storm ("zled").

At the bottom of the hill, the broken trees are not so numerous.

 Soon after beginning the climb following the forest path, the full extent of devastation becomes visible.

Approaching the top of the hill the damage becomes ever more evident.

The impact on the fauna is not known yet.
It'll probably take at least a couple of decades to heal the Slovenian woods from this natural catastrophe.
