Dolomites 2018 #5 - Lago di Sorapiss

This is one of the best loops in the Dolomites. We figured the lake would be cool, but we underestimated that the ENTIRE hike has amazing views.

We started from Passo Tre Croce and walked on a nice trail out to the rifugio and lake. The color was just unreal. After taking it in for a while, we took a less popular trail heading north into a big cirque between the mountains. The views were stunning - down to Misurina and Tre Cime, over to the Cristallo group... we did a lot of stopping, sitting, and staring. And once we left the lake, we didn't really see many people the rest of the day. We did see a couple Ibex, up close and scaling cliffs.

I would repeat this day if I ever got the chance to. It was that good!
