Darn good day for the Dolomites

Up high in the Italian Alps, we’ve landed in beautiful Castelrotto.  The air is clear and it’s intermittent hail, sunshine, or rain. On a Sunday afternoon in the shoulder season, everything in town is very much closed. But I ran around checking out some of the trails and country roads. There are dozens of chalets and spas, perfect for a relaxing vacation in summer or winter. We’re on the very early edge of summer (our hotel only opened back up again last week) so it is next to deserted. In other words – it’s fabulous and we love it. This is by far my favorite spot of the tour so far. Most of the photos were taken out on a 75 minute run around town and beyond.
