August in the Dolomites

• August in the Dolomites

Rain, rain, rain ... rain Everywhere around. Though I wrote that the rain is too nice and I like it. But not indefinitely same. All good bored if it's too much.

Austria flooded mercilessly that day (and perhaps already that week?) And in the rain drowned my vacation days ...

I Monitors weather conditions in different regions of Austria and everywhere saw the same picture with the only difference in the probability of precipitation (about 70% and around 90%).

But okay, we're in Europe. can not be confined to one country, let's see, what have the neighbors? Czech Republic and Slovakia - the same thing, Switzerland - rain ... Italy? Taak ... What we have here is not so far. Bolzano? Bolzano ... In the sun! We went to the South Tyrol! We both wanted to take a walk in the Dolomites.

Oak, South Tyrol, but where exactly? The idea came so spontaneously that I do not have time to prepare. And there is no time to thumb through records and see pictures on the Internet.

Bolzano is not suitable, it is a relatively big city, and we need something small and in the mountains ...

I have a list of where I make interesting places to which the bump on the Internet and which ever want to visit. And South Tyrol I stood there: Drei Zinnen, Schlern and Plattkofel - all names of different mountains. I began to look for hotels in their neighborhood. About the first point somehow nothing was found, and it was far enough from the border, with the same success could be to stay in Austria. But the following two points were next to each other and find a nice otelchik issued in the town of Kastelruth (which I had never heard anything). Incidentally, I do not know how to pronounce in Russian names of cities in South Tyrol. The land is bilingual. All names are duplicated in German and Italian. For example, the city in which we were staying, and called both Kastelruth Castelrotto. (This is because the area first belonged to Austria, and Italy withdrew after the First World War).

But as the German name is always the first, in German there is more to say, and it is the language that I know myself, I will use the German name.

So we stopped in the town of Kastelruth. He was on the hill in the mountains and when we got there, was completely covered by fog.

Hmm ... Well, at least no rain

Weather forecast I looked in Bolzano, which is considerably lower and further south. And as we already know, the weather at the bottom and the top can be very different ...

Anyway. Let's go for a walk? Come on. And while we were walking, the fog slowly dissipated ... a wonderful sight.

And the next day we all waited for the moment doomsday.

The road to South Tyrol. Still quite unclear what awaits us there.

I can watch endlessly on a foggy and score them all memory cards. Fogs, they are so different and so drastically transform the landscape ...

In the forest, too beautiful. The sun's rays pierced the thicket just a couple of seconds and disappeared as suddenly as they appeared.

They reached a small hut, a little refreshed
