Dolomites, Italy (the summary)


For the past two weeks we have been celebrating Bruno's 50th birthday in northern Italy in the Dolomite mountains.  We had great weather for the entire time and we were able to enjoy many of the highlights of the local area.

During the first week we hired a local guide to get us started with the via ferrata (cable protected rock scrambles) and during the second week we explored by ourselves.  We were able to reach several summits over 9500-ft and came back home with no major injuries!  As an unexpected bonus we met up with friends Damon and Jayne (from near Saranac Lake, NY) who were also in the area and we had some fantastic food at the high level mountain huts ('refugios') along the way.

We will be posting more detailed accounts of our daily activities over the next few weeks, but in the meantime here is a link to some of our favorite photos from the trip.  LINK

Wow amazing photos and looks like a great trip. Although some of those crossings look a wee bit scary!! Always knew there was a bit too much daredevil in you guys.
