On my way to Venezia, I have been to visit my talented friend Silvia de Bastiani.
She lives in a beautiful village of the Dolomites mountains, a Unesco world heritage natural site.
Tout d'abord, une randonnée dans le Val Canali entre l'auberge Cant del Gal, le refuge Pradidali et le Passo delle Lede, me plonge dans cet univers minéral et vertical. (croquis 1, 2 et 3)
The three days I spent there allowed me to discover three aspects of this group.
A tough hike on the first day lead me to the Passo delle Lede, and the very mineral and vertical landscape of Lago Pradidali.
The second day, Silvia brought me to Passo Rolle where we had to struggle against the frost, in front of the sharp peak of Cimon della Pala.
And, from the end of the lake, the view over the Pale di San Martino is absolutely breathtaking.
