🥇 Excursion to Valtrigona Valley, Telve - Trentino Alto Adige - Discovering Italy with alequandro! by @alequandro
It was a hot summer day when I decided to embark on an excursion in the suggestive Valtrigona Valley, located in the heart of Trentino Alto Adige in Telve. The air was fresh and fragrant as the sun's rays filtered through the trees, creating a mosaic of light and shadow along the path that wound through the woods. I left early in the morning, but decided to have a packed lunch and then set off full of enthusiasm.The sound of my footsteps echoed in the silence of nature, interrupted only by birdsong and the rustle of leaves moved by the light breeze. The trail was well marked, and following the signs, initially uphill, I ventured deeper and deeper into the valley.
🥈 Manali-Leh highway : Cycled to Second Highest Motorable Mountain Pass which is 17446 ft high by @himalayanwomb
This is the seventh post of the Manali Leh Highway series, in the previous posts of this series you have seen Himalayan Shepherds, Life of Changpa Tribe, Himalayan Rickshaw Run, landscapes of Lahaul Valley and Maure Plains and learned about this colorful land. Today in this series we will read about Tanglang La mountain pass. Tanglang La, located on the Manali-Leh Highway, is said to be the second highest mountain pass in the world. The height of this pass is 5319 meters (17446 feet). This is the last pass while going from Manali to Leh and it is the first pass while coming from Leh to Manali. If the weather is clear at Tanglang La, we can see the mountains standing above 7000 meters in the womb of the Siachen Glacier, in which K2 is the most famous mountain peak in Pakistan, which has the title of the second highest mountain peak in the world.
🥉 Special Train Day Visit by @coolmidwestguy
I woke up at 6:00 a.m. and tried to get my son up shortly after. After eating a complimentary breakfast at the hotel we departed the hotel at 9:00. I really wanted to be on the way no later than 8:00. The plan was too visit some caves, see Mount Rushmore, and drive through Custer State Park to see some wildlife. Well we didn't do all that, we got railroaded!! On the way to one of the caves we hit Hill City, SD. On the corner of an intersection we had turn on was a place called1880 Train. I forgot all about going to see some caves. My trademark I do when I see an old piece of iron on wheels is to take a selfie. This was my first act as parked in the parking lot.
