riding southeast down from Cortina d'Ampezzo, we took a break in the town of Valle di Cadore

the low point of our loop was at Pieve di Cadore, but when we started going up again on the main road we ran into a long tunnel with too much traffic, so we looked for another way, and found this pleasant bike path

. . . which led us to a view ahead to a lake, which (after we got back on the main road) we rode by above left

arriving at Auronzo di Cadore, where we fueled for the big climb - with gelato

almost to the top of the big climb up to Misurina

one of the hotels of Misurina, with one-and-a-half of the Tre Cimes di Lavaredo peaks beyond

Sharon at the Lago di Misurina lake with one or two of the Tre Cimes

south across Lake Misurina to the mountain Sorapiss
- (which we have by now ridden most of the way around)

next down to the road junction at Schluderbach (Italian name: Carbonin) -- we came from Auronzo over Misurina, but we're not continuing to Toblach / Dobbiaco -- instead we'll ride back down to our start in Cortina.

finish riding thru Cortina d'Ampezzo
