A tour in North-Italy
« on: August 12, 2012, 08:29:43 PM »
This summer we had a holiday in North-Italy, more specifically in the little village, Mezzana in the Val di Sole, right in the mountaingroup: Adamello-Brenta.

These are some photos taken on the Stelviopass, on the first day when we ride to Mezzana.
