Dolomites - Day 6: A Relaxing Day with Friends

We awoke on the morning of day-6 a little weary, but ready for another adventure on the via ferrata.  However, we soon received a call to let us know that our guide was sick and could not join us that day.  In truth this was a blessing in disguise because we were both quite tired and we had learned that our friends Damon and Jane would be passing through Corvara that day.  We hadn't seen them for many years, so we were very happy to have the day free to spend with them.

We arranged to meet up with Damon and Jane when they arrived and agreed to go for a short hike.  They had been in Rome, Florence and Bolzano and were not yet accustomed to the altitude, so we took the Piz Boe cable car up to the area near the Refugio Al Vallon and started from there.  It was a beautiful day for a hike and we had great views in every direction.  We were back to the hotel by mid-afternoon and we enjoyed a great dinner together at the end of the day.
