We landed in Zurich at 10:00 am Swiss time....that translates to 4:00 am in the US. I was so surprised to see all of the colorful leaves on the hillside. Guess I never thought about fall in Europe.
Our second flight took us to Milan,Italy where we boarded a bus for the hour journey to Lake Como. We saw a large campground on the way with tents and small campers all parked close together. It seemed a little out of place until we went a little further and saw a dirt bike race track with moguls and hills manicured for the dozens of bikers. We had passed it before I could pull the camera out. Lesson learned. KEEP the camera handy.
Our hotel is right on the lake. We can look across and see the village of Bellagio. There is a ferry to cross the lake. That is on our to do list.
Time to get a hot bath and a little shut eye. We dine at 7. :).

... which is a small town on our side of the peninsula/lake. We finally found the start of the trail we were hunting for (directions of course were, "Find the church...then face the bus stop... now look left..." Typical Italians.
It was drizzling lightly, but we were in a very covered forest for the first half of the hike, going literally straight up hill! At some points I was using my hands to climb up. We didn't see any other people for ...
... to catch a car ferry to Menaggio and walk back to the hotel which took about 40 minutes.
Some observations from Dave: Italians are very stylish people. Tattoos and piercings are uncommon. Italians are patient, gregarious, smoke a lot and surprisingly, comply with traffic signage although parking appears unregulated. Italy has preserved the history and culture of the western ...
... couple at the check in desk at our hotel, they were asking about WIFI, so we chatted with them for a few minutes. When we arrived at dinner, we were seated next to them, actually shared a table. Nice people, from Tampa, good conversation. And as we were leaving the restaurant, I put my backpack on the table to zip it, and set it on fire with the candle!! Just the strap melted a bit, no big deal, but it sure scared ...
... have the option of indoor lodging if I can't handle the cold. Finally, there's a mountain lake, and a touristy mountain town on the other side. A lot of upscale looking vacation homes here. Everything's probably going to be pretty pricey--I guess I'd better get used to it... Switzerland will probably be worse. I do notice something peculiar: an American flag, Italian flag and the regional multi-colored striped flag being flown side by side ...
... stone walls and trails I come across along my climb. Old sheep pens perhaps? Relics of another era, when people actually tried to live off of these rugged mountainsides? Finally it's time to make my slow descent, reminding myself that if I keep making wrong turns like this, I'm never going to make it to Switzerland. But I do... again... I take another unmarked trail which I assume will take me on up the gorge to the pass... no... the path ...
