Two Rifugios

Two Rifugios

Mountain inns are such an important feature of the Dolomites. When you are out hiking, trekking, or mountaineering in nature or in the wild, they provide warmth, sustenance, and camaraderie at the end of the trail. We arrived at Rifugio Averau after a serious trek uphill from the Cinque Torri.


A woman outside was busy stacking wood against the side of the building, almost like constructing a puzzle.


The resident canine was a calm and observant German Shepherd.


Inside there was a big old-fashioned stove that would turn all that wood outside into warmth when the weather turned cold.


We ordered something to drink and then we made our way back down the trail.


We passed a car on its  way up. That’s taking the easy way.


Walking back down on the slippery scree was no party. You really need to watch where you place your feet, so that you don’t slide.

Finally we were back at Cinque Torri and it had clouded up since the morning.


Croda di Lago was looking positively ominous.


However, we were at Rifugio Scoiattoli and it was time for lunch.


Dogs are welcome at the rifugios.


And they serve hearty fare.


A cozy and amicable place to eat and rest after a day’s hike.

    Great stove 🙂 Still don’t like that scree though…

    That looks like a scrumptious meal – what a reward for an intrepid hiker!

      Very hearty food in the rifugios.

        Exactly what one needs to replenish one’s energy stores after a long hike, hey?
