Pala Barzana Fall '11

I looked back through the blog and found I'd climbed  Pala Barzana (842m) from the east only twice this year.  I shouldn't neglect it like that.  So this cold crisp morning I took a spin up through Bus di Colvera, then Poffabro (506m) and over the pass.  It was very quiet and beautiful- no cars at all from Poffabro to Bosplans.  There was frost on all the curves so I descended very slowly.  I don't know if it was because I was frozen, but felt like I was going very fast through the 4km tunnel from Barcis to home.

Probably the last ride over the pass in 2011.  I'll try to visit more often next year!
