5. Dolomites: Col Rodella to Pass Duron along the Friedrich August Weg then down the Duron Valley to Capitello 2017:06:28

A bright morning and got away in good time. Back up to Col Rodella, then an undulating path to Pass Duron. The Friedrich August Weg. 
Good flowers at intervals, but a strong and blustery wind. Tops shrouded in mist. Then on a track down the valley Duron. A lot more flowers but still windy and started to rain for the final section. 14.2 miles total. Bus back from Campitello.
Views from Coll Rodella at the start of the walk. Head north down the main track and then turn left, west alomg the The Friedrich August Weg.
