I also got a chaos in my brain, as I know both Tbilisi and Atlanta are the capitals of Georgia, but there are two Georgias out there...

I don't know about that. It did change its path over years, but it is believed that the dry Čepovan valley could be a candidate for that.

Meanwhile in Alto Adige/Suedtirol, a landslide happened near Termeno/Tramin. Some rocks fell from a mountain over a farm. Two big rocks destroyed part of the barn and garage:




but another one, 400 cubic meters in volume, stopped literally inches from the main residence:

I suspected as well, since there is no destruction path behind it. .

That boulder obviously it's the remain of an old landslide. So they should have know that it wasn't the right place to build a house.

We know where flood plains are all over the world. We still build houses etc on them though.

If you like to explore mountain passes, have a lot of time, and the weather is good, you may try this trip:

Kranj is nothing to see, go instead to Škofja Loka. As a side trip also visit Vršič pass from Kranjska Gora, it should be already open by that time. Mangart road is usually opened end of May or even June, depends of snow conditions.

A huge amount of snow fell along the southern flanks of the Alps. 1.2 meters of fresh snow was reported in Carinthia.

And this is Cortina d'Ampezzo (more than 1 m in the town, more than 3 m in the hamlets on the mountains):

Thanks!
I will see, Škofja Loka is also in the area, I'm looking for a place to stay over night and also walk a little. Ljubljana I already visited.

That's already in the bucketlist, I was thinking to go for that later in summer, I think a normal weekend should be enough for it. And I want to add the tripoint A/SLO/I to that trip, I saw there is a cable cart from Austria.

Sounds like a good inspiration for one-day-long trip

Because we are in some weather problems, if somebody needs some water we can send it for free
Floods in my city.
Pics in the link:

A big mess to cross the city and surroundings areas for a week in the region and it is not finished.




The only positive thing was this week the opening of a portion of the eastern ring road.
But crossing over the river will not be finished for several months.
