The road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began

Today the skies cleared, we woke up before mid-day, and finally got to go on our hike in the Alps (well, technically the Dolomites -- Italy's Alps). Along the hike, Alice and Mike argued whether or not girls glistened, as Alice's mother has said, or if girls sweat and got smelly. Apparently, the later is true.
Our hike was gloriously circuitous. By this we mean that we went in a circle. We started going up, realized we went down for a while, and then returned pleasantly and oh so sweatedly to up again.
We will type more later as Chris is trying out the Italian custom of afternoon nap.


  1. Nice pics! Thanks for the b-day video greetings yesterday. You win the prize for greetings coming the longest distance. Glad to hear that Chris is working diligently to pick up Italian customs. Weather here is T-storms every day, or at least partly cloudy and possible showers...EVERY DAY. But still, a bad day of fishing vs. a good day at work - you know which one wins!

    Ciao and happy adventuring (UF)

  2. speak for yourselves, i glisten

  3. I don't know who Banana Face is but I also glisten. You must have gotten the short end of the genes.


    Have fun- Amanda

  4. I am a full-fledged member of the Sweaty and Nasty Club. Huzzah!

    Glad ya'll had fun. The pictures are beautiful.
