The Dolomites 2012: Day 3

Rifugio Genova – Rifugio Puez (2475m)

We made our own breakfast outside the rifugio before we started the walk of the day. It was a beautiful morning. We found ourselves above the clouds.

We made it to the top Forcella della Roa (2617m) before we headed down a little and sat down on the grass for lunch.

Then we started climbing again. It became a little rocky and difficult and at the top it began to thunder. We sat down under a rock and waited patiently.

When it finally stopped we continued, which seemed like forever, before we reached Rifugio Puez.

We had a typical Austrian dinner gulach and knödel for dinner. And then we played cards with our new friends. Roger taught us to play Bridge, which was fun but of course we got tired early, after a long and hard day.
