Col Alt - Monte Candaglia

A cool August morning, perfect for a climb up to Col Alt.  I went nice and easy up to the Alpini chapel above Montaner, the first time nonstop on Fedaia.  Continued up toward Col Alt, but I deviated to the alpine wetland then descended to Carbonaria park on Strada dei Patriarche.  Next I climbed up past La Crosseta then turned onto the gravel road for Candaglia.  Great fun on this road, deserted except for a few hikers.

After Casa Forestale I climbed up past 1500 meters to junction with Panoramica Cansiglio-Piancavallo. Again nearly deserted.  Descended to Bornass, Madonna della Monte and home.  Very tired- think I need to eat more before riding.  

Alpine wetland below Col Alt; usually noisy with frogs
but quiet in this cool August spell
