Here is his story:
a greeting from Marco Cavicchi, finally today I will finish telling you about my adventure on the splendid 3 peaks of Lavaredo.
In the previous story we stayed at the night spent at the Refuge Locatelli, who had to ensure us some nice shot of the Milky Way, I speak in the plural because I was in the company of Luke remember? (for the most forgetful the link is www.inguaribileviaggiatore.com/the-3-peaks-of-lavaredo)
In any case, unfortunately the weather did not allow it, therefore, a little ‘disappointed, back in the common room and fall asleep for a few hours, yes, because the idea is to wake up in time to see the dawn in this valley, always hoping for a clearing of the sky.
Well, as soon as the clock rings indicating the time to wake up, I open my eyes and I realize from the small window behind the bed, which, slightly covered by the humidity formed in the corners, we began to see the mountains , believe me, a unique sight almost moving, these peaks that rise proudly from the sun in the middle of the valley, waiting to be kissed by the first pink rays of the sun.
Luca immediately wake up, we dress very fast and run outside the Locatelli, obviously trying to make as little noise as possible, we are still in a common dormitory.
We go down the creaky wooden stairs and open the doors, here is the WOW effect that we looked forward to, the warm colors on the pink / orange that reflected on the rocks and some clouds in the sky, finally it is the blue to make it from master and no longer the gray.
The lakes seen with the drone
We’re very happy to fly Frizzy (remember? The cute and inseparable drone that accompanies me in every outing the way) so realizing us from the iPhone that the 2 lakes behind us were giving a totally unique show, they took a color bluish dark, reflecting Mount Paterno and some clouds, the second WOW effect of this wonderful morning.
But believe me, it’s not over, looking over the ponds (always behind us) we realize that the precipice towards the valley is completely covered with a soft blanket of white clouds, like cotton, still, immobile.
In short, a dawn to be breathless.
As soon as the sun has come out and gone up, the magic ends, so we decide to return to the shelter to have breakfast, absolutely essential to tackle the trek back.
Once we have freshly refilled with bread, jam and butter, we return to the dormitory to retrieve the backpack and go out to go on the small ridge on the left of Locatelli, where we meet 4 other guys, who like us, passionate about photography are intent to immortalize every single inch of the valley.
After having presented and discussed the respective photos / videos we decided to walk towards the return route all together, in fact will be our fellow trek up to the Auronzo refuge.
So all that remains is to take a last look at these 3 wonders, and when that is done, we set off.
The return must be said to be quite tiring (perhaps because of the great weight that we carry on the shoulders), in fact the first stretch, the one that goes from the shelter Locatelli to the shelter remains practically all uphill, so we do it very calmly and with a little break once you get to the foot of the 3 Peaks.
Let’s go back to the path
Resumed the strength but above all the breath, we resume the journey, we pass the Lavaredo building quickly, continuing on the same path, until you reach a crossing of cows led by their shepherds with lots of dogs, a pearl that only the mountain can give, we really enjoyed following the whole flock for about a km, because obviously we had to go all in the same direction, the shelter Lavaredo.
Once we arrive we greet our fellow travelers and end our day with a nice dinner inside the Lavaredo.
Taking the sums of this 2 days on the Belluno Dolomites, I can say that it was a really exciting tour and that I recommend to all readers.
The fact of staying in a shelter is a unique experience that allows you to breathe and experience the mountains to full giving us the opportunity to completely escape from those urban rhythms to which we belong, and that too often makes us forget how beautiful it can be being outdoors in a unique place in the world completely immersed in nature.
Clear … the adventure is there, as you can imagine a shelter is not a hotel, you need to get off to some compromise, but I can guarantee that it is really worth it.
Below I leave the video story of this second day and a video that collects the most beautiful and exciting images of those beautiful places.
And in wishing you a good vision, I greet you and refer you to the next trip out of town
