Pralongià: Are We ThereYet? (4)

31 Jul


Much to my chagrin Rifugio Pralongià was not our stopping place for lunch. We walked on. The small green peak in the near distance was the Col di Lana. Once more I photographed the Sella behind an unused chair lift. Some of the lifts operate only in ski season.


As we began our descent we passed this meeting of bikers.


Marion on the trail before the Marmolada.


The starkness of the Sella offset by the exuberance of yellow globe flowers.


Kids hiking up the trail. They made it seem so easy.


And a lone mountain biker.

Yes, here we are at Rifugio Marmotta. This is where we finally sat and ate lunch on our way down from the plateau.


Hearty food. That’s what they serve. This was an appetizer of Speck (bacon).


Looking down to the remainder of our way. This had to have been a good 10 to 11 mile hike.

    I would’ve been so hungry by now. What an incredible walk!

    That plate of speck was insane. How many of you were at the table? We love speck but it’s a treat so we don’t have it often.

      This was our appetizer for three, and then we ordered our entrees.

        I thought there were only three of you but when I saw the size of that platter I thought I must be mistaken. I guess hiking up and down mountains burns a lot of calories.

        Marion ordered it and that’s what they brought.

    Gosh that’s a huge platter of meat!! Though I imagine you must have been pretty hungry by then – another set of great scenic photos, those golden meadows are enchanting.

      This scenery is exactly what I came to see. It reaches deep into my soul.
