A second excursion took us to the nearby village Peio, situated in the Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio. Here you can take a cable car up to the height of 3,000 m. The nearby Monte Vioz is 3645 m high.

An impression of the enviroment.

The Stelvio features in the great bike races - if you think it's taxing in a car, imagine what it must be like on a bike - going up or down!  :o 8)   

Just checked the stats ........Over 24 kms long,  up  over 1800m ..... all those hairpins, more than two dozen........ phew!!

Between the mountains, Adamella and Presanella, there is the Val Genova with a nice waterfall: Cascata di Nardis.

Frankie,
thanks for your report, enjoy it. The Vipera berus looks a bit weird.
Was it dead or old skin peeling off ?
Best wishes
Armin
