Back in Nervesa della Battaglia I headed home. On impulse I deviated from the route at Fiume Monticano, following it across a plain covered in vineyards and fields, luckily rejoining the route only 3 km out of the way.
Must return to Il Montello (driving part way) and try climbing a few of the prese- there are dozens, some paved, some dirt, so the possibilities are endless.
