Trailblazing the path.
About me / Bio:
Alojz Knafelc was a Slovene cartographer, mountaineer, and the inventor of the Slovene trail blaze. Born in Šmihel pri Novem Mestu, he initially worked as a drawer for the railway connection project between Hrpelje and Kozina. He was known for recoloring the Aljaž Tower on Triglav and writing instructions on path-blazing, published in the Alpine Gazette. His legacy includes the Knafelc blaze, a trail marking system used throughout Slovenia and former Yugoslavia.
