Valvasone

I haven't been down to our southeast much lately.  I'm trying to remedy that oversight.  This morning I rode down to Cordenons, then the road east toward Arzene.  Shortly afterward I reached Valvasone, a pretty town with some very old buildings.  I wandered around taking pictures, then left town headed toward Vivaro.  There is a guado (ford) on this road (also on the road from Cordenons) but they are bone dry.  The surface is hard-packed so no problem on a road bike.  At Vivaro I took the long straight road to Vajont and home.  This route is very flat, which felt great after all the climbing lately.

The castle (pardon my thumb)
