Big turning point today. We haven't had much success if finding a good direction to head upon our arrival in Italy bathe weather turning has us a bit concerned as neither of us want to be wet and cold all the time. Rain for a few days is manageable but anything more becomes unpleasant. We start the morning off by heading to the tourist info office and parking outside at the picnic table where we have access to the free wi-fi. We need to brainstorm ideas. There had been early talk ...
We tackled the pass today and made it to Italy! Woooo! The climb wasn't so bad. Breaking it into 2 days was a smart idea and worked well. It gave us time to rest, enjoy the sites, stop for pictures, and catch our breath. We started at 1400m and worked our way up to 2350m. My highest climb yet! I was pretty excited.

As it turns out the sequence of events worked in our favour. We had the gorge to ourselves majority of the time, ran into minimal construction and knocked off a huge chunk of our next day's climb. The first few switchbacks immediately took me back to the first pass we did up to Vielha, the ...
... of numbers, a flawed and unpopular decision. This is not cool. Then when we’ve have lost count of these machines passing you in both directions, full of self doubt, we pulled up behind a group of Italian riders at the top of a pass having a photo op. Same old crowd, BMW, Ducati and a gleaming new XT1200Z! It had blue rims and front shocks! Italian flair. As soon as we arrived the owner greeted us like long lost friends and we returned the salutations. His ...
