Malga Fara

Partly cloudy this morning and the previsione called for mountain thunderstorms in the afternoon so I picked a short ride.  Up through the 4 km tunnel, right toward Andreis and then onto the road for Pala Barzana.  Just above Bosplans I took a right for Malga Fara.  This road doesn't mess around with switchbacks, etc: it just heads up.  I stood on the pedals for everything harder than 15% and the rest I just gutted out.  At the top I snapped some fotos and headed down.  When you rejoin the Pala Barzana road gradients are again are in the 14% - 16% range but soon let  up and you reach the top. Fun glide down to Valdifrina, Valcolvera, Maniago and home. Didn't get rained on.
