Val Cimoliana

Up Val Cellina, through the tunnels, past Barcis again, but this time I rode to Cimolais and then turned up Val Cimoliana.  Beautiful mountains, streams, forests and at the end a famous pinnacle, il Campanile di Val Montanaia.  Today there were cars from Sweden and France parked at the trailhead, and I saw a gnat-sized climber ascending the vertical rock face.  The ride home is all downhill (almost) and felt dreamlike.  Probably not safe to ride in that condition  but I got away with it this time.   This area is too close-by to visit so infrequently.  I'll try to make amends.
