Another photo of Heather with dog!
Here you see Heather posing with another St. Bernard, this time at the top of the paved road climb on the border with France. We climbed up and over into France for a drink and to find some better MTB trail maps, then returned to Italy via the same road, pausing for a leisurely pranzo about two-thirds of the way back down before heading "home" to catch the Tour stage on TV. Neither of us are big Alberto Contador fans but it was nice to see some sort of attack going on to liven up what's in danger of becoming a rather lackluster Tour. We hope the Pyrenees stages liven things up a bit. Meanwhile we're doing some R & D for future itineraries along with our "pedala forte, mangia".
