Two weeks hiking in the Dolomites, Italy
On the 1st of July, I went on a hiking trip to the Dolomites with my two friends Daniel and Ruth for two weeks.
Day five - Saturday 5th July
Day five was a beautiful day - too hot almost.
We walked South around a hill and towards a pass (Furc. dla Roa, 2617m) in the Odles.
The last part of the climb towards the pass was across and up a scree slope.
Regardless, there were still flowers growing from the bare rock.
From the pass, we went along the top of a very bare valley on the other side towards another pass (Furc. Forces de Sieles, 2505m).
We stopped for lunch half way along, and had an amazing view back across to La Canssles.
From Furc. Forces de Sieles, we climbed up to the top of an apparently unnamed mountain with a grassy top, albeit cliff edges, with the help of a via ferrata.
Then we headed East along the Munt de Puez, along the North edge of a deep gorge.
We arrived at the hostel (Puezhütte/Rifugio Puez, 2475m) to find it fairly busy.
We were put in a room with twelve beds crammed in triple-decker style.
I climbed the little hill to the East to take some photos.
The hostel had loads of rabbits around - they seemed to be deliberately there, with a hutch, but just roaming free.
I built a fairly large house of cards, but it fell down before I could take a photo of it.
