Italy - Dolomites 2011

Tre Croci (but not Tre Cime)

We woke to drizzle with a forecast of all day rain. We headed up and over Tre Croci to Misurina.

At Tre Croci, it was 3.5 C - bloody cold!

We hit the first coffee shop in Misurina and got some hot food to try to warm up. When we left I had on everything and was shivering like mad. We had hoped to climb Tre Cime, but the sight of snow just a few feet higher made us think twice. The descent from Misurina was already going to be miserable. Descending off Tre Cime would be far worse. We showed some good judgment. We found a sport shop and bought some fleece and headed downhill.
