Dolomites

It´s always exciting when you explore a new area, a new trail. Even after some research
on maps and the internet, you are not sure if the trail is rideable and worth hours of walking up.

Right from the parking place the trail is steeply rising, leading us trough a narrow valley.
After 2 hours of walking we can see "our" summit high above (marked with the arrow).


It took us 4 more hours till we reached the top. The scenery is so amazing, you can understand why some
people say, that the dolomites are one of the most beautiful mountains in the world.
Tired but happy on our way up: (klick on the pic, it´s 1600 pix wide)











Wolfgang and me posing on the rocks. ;-)
If we would jump of the cliff, we would "land" on the meadow you can see on the first picture!




The trail comes all the way down from the left side to the saddle in the middle of the picture.


Some well known mountains in the background: "Tre Cime di Lavaredo"

After more than ten ours we are back at our cars, tired but happy!
This time our exploration was a complete success!
