Happy Birthday, Aunt Pat!

We drove through the Iselsberg pass at approximately 6000′ to the Italian border. We made a ‘comfort stop’ at the Iselsberg Cafe where we had a gorgeous view of the Dolomites. We lunched in Cortina, the Olympic skiing resort in the Dolomites, where we wandered through a clothing and produce market. Then we drove on to Innsbruck via Lake Misurina and the Tyrolean Alps. Lake Misurina was lovely – clear and a beautiful blue.

In Innsbruck we went to the Swarovski Crystal Gallery and saw the beautiful Tord Boontje installation – a winter wonderland of crystal, cut paper and light. We spent some more time sightseeing around Innsbruck and saw the famous Golden Roof.
