Our first hike in the Dolomites - Sceda
14.07.2015 - 14.07.2015 27 °C
With map in hand and detailed instructions, Peter reminded us to turn on our senses while we were hiking. What will we see, smell, feel and hear? For the next five hours that's what we did. Peter told us when it's warm the trees give off their scent. We did smell lovely pine and other sweeter forest scents. We heard birds, trickling streams and rushing water. I felt the warm sun on my back and the pure joy of the wind on the peaks, cooling me off. The hike took us through rocky areas, meadows, green grass, evergreen forests and along crystal clear streams. With the cable chairs and lifts we were able to start and finish on two different sides of the mountain. Incredible!!
If you look on the far left of this photo, this is where the cross was and where we started out. You can see the tiny line going across the green and this is where we hiked until we reached the other side, followed by the hike back down.
