Dolomiti – giorno 1

A stroll to Rifugio Velo della Madonna

Richard and I were joined by Dave (one of Richard’s friends) for our holiday in the Dolomites. We started our adventure from San Martino di Castrozza, a perfect base for exploring the Pale di San Martino mountains. The general aim of the holiday was to spend as much time in the mountains as possible and to climb via ferrata wherever possible.

So, the first day entailed a fairly leisurely plod up to 2358 m to our first night’s accomodation at Rifugio Velo Della Madonna. We finished the hike to the rifugio in slight drizzle, but soon after the weather turned for the worse and the hut was buffetted by wind and rain all evening, followed by thunderstorms through the night. We were glad to be in the warm comfort of the hut!
