Troi dei Vuolth

Head north from Selva on foot to end of the gravel road (near our wideband repeater on a disused WW II bunker).  Head up the trail signed Troi dei Vuolth and follow the trail up to the alpine meadows at Baitola Polo.  There are great views from here of the mountains above, the plain below, and steep scree canyons on either side.  Next time I'll  continue on the Troi dei Vuolth to Palussa, another mountain cabin for hikers.

Tried out the trekking poles my mountain-running friend Doug recommended.  They're great- let you use upper body muscles to augment lower body when climbing, and help with balance when descending.  Love 'em.
