Dolomites and Alps, Rest Day!

After four days of spectacular but challenging riding, our tired legs had a day off. For lunch, Ian and I took the two gondola ride up out of Alleghe to the ski-area-in-winter Col dei Baldi (elevation, 6,300 feet). Turns out there is an easier way to get up a mountain than riding your bike up it…

Here is some of the trip:

Just got on the first gondola, heading up out of town.

Ahhh, the views...

At the top--ok setting to have lunch in.
