It was everything I hoped for… and tractors!
Find Balzano. It is northeast of Milan deep in the Dolomites. Now follow the main road to the left like you are going to Merano. About halfway on the right you will see Salonetto sitting up there on the hill overlooking the valley. We are here for a few nights.
Our high elevation adventure today was the Panoramic Gondola ride to the Dachstein Glacier at 2900+m. Just like yesterday it was mighty cold on top. We dressed as warmly as we could. The sign showed 4C.
I rode over it today it was COLD! I thought I took a picture of the temperature sign, but I guess I didn’t get the button pushed. It read 3C at the top. I had my Gerbing on the entire day.
