Marmolada Glacier, Italy

In the middle of summer in the Dolomites, the Marmolada Glacier can be seen.

Beautiful colourful wildflowers were everywhere.

This was the day I fell in love with the most spectacular mountain range, thanks forever Rick and Monica :-)

Some info regarding the area:


The Queen of the Dolomites. The Marmolada, with its 3,342 m altitude, is the highest mountain in the Dolomites. Its' northern side is covered by the largest glacier in the whole Dolomites group. The Marmolada Glacier contains the resort villages of Arabba and Malga Ciapela that are both linked together. The ski area can be easily reached with the cableways from Malga Ciapela and Lago Fedaia. There is "La Bellunese" a slope that runs from Punta Rocca (3.270 m) down to Malga Ciapela for 12 km. This slope is considered by international press reports as the most beautiful in the Alps and the Dolomiti Superski Area. It is a difficult ski run because of very changeable weather conditions.
