    Longue étape au pays de l'ours dont je croise quelques belles empreintes. Pour la première fois, je prends des photos en regardant derrière. A proximité du hameau de Stupizza sur les bords de la rivière Natisone, le sentier présente quelques passages raides et délicats et la montée vers Montefosca est également pénible sur un chemin pierreux et cassant. Aprés quelques erreurs d'itinéraire dans les bois et un long détour provoqué par des travaux forestiers, je décide de ne pas rejoindre Montemaggiore.Je trouve un hébergement à proximité de la frontiere Slovène, sur une petite route entre Montefosca et Prossenico .

    Long step in bear country which I meet some nice prints. For the first time, I take pictures looking back. Near the hamlet of Stupizza on the banks of the river Natisone, the trail has some steep and tricky passages and climb to Montefosca is painful on a stony path and brittle. After some mistakes route through the woods and a long detour caused by forestry work, I decided not to join Montemaggiore.Je find accommodation near the border Slovenian, on a small road between Montefosca and Prossenico.

    We had decided to do Monte Matajur and split this stage in 2, so we booked to stay at the B&B in Prossenicco. When we looked out from Pelizzo in the morning we found low cloud which was clearly going to stay for much of the day, so we decided against climbing Monte Matajur. The paths again went through woodland, mostly pine in places, which were clearly popular with the local trails bikers and with mountain bikers. Montefosca looked like time had forgotten it, but there was a bar selling drinks and ice cream. Then on through more woods, past some abandonned border posts and along a forestry lane up to Prossenicco: don't bother going through the forest itself, it looks very overgrown. The B&B at Prossenicco is the yellow building on the left as you get onto the main street, and the restaurant is on the right, called Brez Mej: they are soon to have rooms there also. We had great food here and enjoyed the company of the locals.
