Selva in Val Gardena, Italy july 2010

always something new to see on the trail, long horned and long haired bison on sassolungo trail
view from our balcony of the dantecepies lift and trail. who could ever tire of this?

3 handsome guys I picked up

everyone's minding their own business. walking toward passo gardena

noah has arrived in Selva

heated water on a cold day with piped in music for underwater swimming. what could be better?
A glorious week in Selva: hiking, swimming, relaxing, enjoying serious family time and wonderful dining. We had walks in the brillant sunshine, pouring rain, thunder, lightening, and dark clouds.We experienced varying temperatures from hot to cold. Mountains were the pure, lightish violet color of the dolomite stone one minute and snow covered the next minute after the fog lifted from the rainstorm in the valley.  We could watch it all from either the sala relax (chill out zone of hotel), the outdoor heated hot tub or the fabulous outdoor heated swimming pool (this was of course after we returned drenched from our daily hiking adventure).  Such a wonderful week in one of the most beautiful parts of Italy.

  1. Such an amazing vacation! I like the photo of the guys talking so intensely that they missed the cow!
