Weekend Special Italian Alps

I’m the Shutterbug Chef!

We had the good fortune to travel to the Dolomites, the Southern Alps in Northern Italy!  That’s a lot of geography, huh?!  🙂  Anyway, the town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy is where we stayed and the views were spectacular!!

Our activities included mountain biking, hiking, traveling beyond 11,000 feet by gondola then hiking up another 1,000 feet!  We also had amazing food and wine.  Three great days in the Italian Alps made for an amazing vacation!

Please enjoy the following pictures from our various activities.

Mountain Biking was my favorite activity.  We rented e-bikes, which are motorized to assist you in pedaling up hills.  The biking is still a workout, (trust me on this!) but that little bit of help makes the steep climbs a little easier!

The following shots are before, during and after a tunnel through the mountain. Along the way were scenes of the path, the River Boite and a mountain lake!
