day 07 finishes. for a short day, it seems to have taken a while to write up

We head down Croce Domini (I have a video, but not uploaded... suffice to say it is a little more civilized on the descent)



We get into Breno & the GPS seems to know the way.. who am I to argue?



Of course after all that, I turned the wrong way.... oh well

We head north towards Forno Allione and the bottom of Passo del Vivione. I have a video of the climb of Vivione, but it isn't processed yet. To me it is cool to watch... to you? probably like watching someone else's home movies {edit} here's the climb, compressed to a tolerable 11 minutes



Here's a snip of the descent though. It gets interesting because you now ride on the cliff side.



We roll in to Schilpario.



And head over to Albergo Edelweiss. This is the hotel we found last year in the downpour. They have rooms (I think we are their only guest again)



our view



so we drop the gear & go for a walk.





beautiful little town







the heritage of the region (before skiing) was lumber & mining





I imagine myself having a coffee by the stream...



or a coffee in the piazza
