Medevil castle ruins we hiked up to

Christian tests the stability of the structure


Monica, the queen of the castle (Notice her makeshift flag)

We woke up and had a pretty nice breakfast at our B&B and then took a short stroll to the cable car in town that will take us to the top of the dolomites for real mountain hiking. When we got there, we realized that the cable car is not working since it's the off-season (the real season doesn't start for another week) and the ONLY way to get to the top is to hoof it by foot. We decided that we didn't need a stinkin cable car and started to walk on one of the trails to the top. We didn't go up to the very top but we did find some pretty neat castle ruins hidden in the woods. We came back into town after a long hike and then had a typical tirolean dinner of cheese dumplings with butter.
