7. Dolomites: Pozza di Fassa to Ciampac and down to Canazei 2017:06:30

Back down the valley to Pozza di Fassa on the bus Then the Buffaure gondola then a slow chair lift with lovely views., Orchids and Lillies.

Path up a ridge to start with, and a cold wind. Good flowers and the sound of cowbells. Excellent views. A snow shower at the col, then we walked down over the meadows to Ciampac. Lovely flowers and more sheltered. Walked down a very steep vehicle track as didn't see any path signed, but there was one on the western side as we came to the exit later.

Turned left at a bridge beside a new debris trap, and a lovely walk down through woodland to Canazei. Brief thunder and rain, then bright again.
