These are a few photos from our Italian holiday. Gill and I took the cable car from Malcesine on Lake Garda to the Monte Baldo ridge. The temperature was in the high 30s at Lake level, so we weren't going to walk up it were we? We took a stroll along the ridge and then walked back down to Malcesine. Monte Baldo is 2218 metres high, so it took us a few hours, getting steadily hotter as we got lower.

There is a bar half way down, the Bar Prai, which we naturally aimed for, only to find it shut. It apparently only opens in the height of summer.

The photos of the Dolomites are from a day trip we took into the mountains. We stopped at the Poldoi Pass and the Sella Pass.

Skiing is such a big industry in this part of the world that I think the mountains are slightly spoiled with ski tows, lifts and associated cabling everywhere.
