We are now in the northern alps of Italy

The Dolomites

we probably went on the best hike we have done on this trip.

We didn't expect it to be as long a hike as it turned out. 5 hours

It was so exhilarating that we didn't want it to end.

I wish you all could he been with us. All the time next to a fantastic

mountain named the Odle. The track was in meadows, pine forests

and had it's ups and downs. We went as far as a great mountain refugio.

(A small mountain restaurant way up in the high country. The Dolomites

have always been one of my favorites.

Here are some photos of our hike.

To let you know. I'm having a problem adding images on the blog because my

tablet is suffering from only having just so much memory.

I'll keep working on it. There may be a solution. If there is I will find it 😠

Take care of yourself, Lowell. Don't overdo. I'm having so much fun making you squatty, then tall, trying to get the photo to the right proportions.

If Gloria would stop doing photos in portrait I would retain my svelte figure 😆

She was hitch-hiking so I thought she needed to do some real hiking!

Oh! There's that pretty lady again. Look, Lowell...she's found a table for lunch. You should get off your rock and join her. Maybe she'll come home with you. :>)
