We started up the Passo Tre Croci from the front door of our Hotel

    

Riding the loop in this direction yields a steep uphill and a great downhill!

           

There were field of wildflowers forever.

           

It's hard to stop taking pictures of the mountains, forests, and fields.

           

The clouds and scenery were constantly changing.

          

The shade of the forests looked quite inviting.  It was very warm in the sun.

           

           

Ah, the cooling waters of Lago Misurina

     

     

Yes, we are in horse country.  Below, horses everywhere.
