Casera Campo

Rode up through Barcis to Piancavallo.  Just before you head down the descent toward Aviano there's a right turn marked Sauc on Via dei Rododendri.  This is a beautiful road that carries you a few kilometers to Casera Campo, where the pavement ends at 1450 meters.  With a mountain bike or hiking you can continue to Valle Friz at 1500 meters, then join the road which goes above Mezzomonte toward Il Cansiglio.  I'll have to try it from the other end next time.  Great views from up here, though a little hazy.  Fun descent and ride home.

An unusual plant that was growing all along the road around 1400 meters
