Well we’ve finally had everything….sun, sea,hills mountains, villages, towns, great views..you name it…
We’ve also had all weathers..hot, humid, warm, cold with rain, thunderstorms, hail and finally sleet and snow!
A coupla days ago we sat in our tents while outside raged THE most scary storm ever..talk about a son e lumiere show and the wind…..it was just as well we were in our tents..else they might have flown away.
That was our introduction to the Dolomites and we’ve not really been dry since.
So today was Stelvio day..a hard day in anyone’s language but we just chose a day when the word hard just doesn’t go far enough:
these guys have chipped the snow off their saddles and are about to go on down…some of us opted not to! I managed to get to the top but was distraught with cold when I arrived..I guess I don’t DO cold very well.
Anyhow ..got the T shirt! Only 1 day’s ride left…sooooo sad.
