Here the well-paved road ends and I did some gravel biking for awhile. I stopped at the little alpine wetland which was completely grown over and full of loud frogs last summer. I continued down to Casera Col Alt and then began hiking/carrying the bike on CAI 1060. I was hoping to find the war memorial but that will have to wait for another day. After maybe a km of hiking I regained a dirt road at a restored stone house at 750 meters. This road eventually reached Strada della Patriarca, the paved road connecting Villa di Villa to Il Cansglio. The ride home was fun: I wasn't as tired as I expected. Must return soon to explore some more.
