Monte Pizzoc

Our weather has been stormy off and on so I tried to work in a short local ride this morning.  On the road bike I cruised down to Sarone and headed up to La Crosetta at 1100 meters.  From here a little dip down toward Il Cansiglio and a left turn toward Monte Pizzoc.  This beautiful road climbs through a forest of large beech trees up to around 1400 meters, where the forest opens into alpine pastures, then on up to 1550 meters where the road ends.  Great views up here even with the cloudiness.  Descent and ride home were fun too- didn't even get cold.  And best of all- no rain.

View west toward Vittorio Veneto, prosecco area,
and Monte Cesen in distance

Northwest: Col Visentin, Bellunese dolomiti

To east: Il Cansiglio grassy altopiano, Monte Cavallo in distance

Wildflowers at summit

Looking down at the Cadolten area I recently rode the MTB to from Fregona
