Our trip in pictures: In and around Bormio, Italy

All of these pictures were taken on our ride from Lake Como to Bormio…and then onto the Stelvio Pass.

Cow bells for days! This was a highlight of the trip for me. These cows were beautiful…and unexpected!

In the Lake Como region, the roads were quite narrow. Hard to believe that this road was meant for two way traffic!

This type of decorative fountain is a common fixture all around Italy.  It is the equivalent of our drinking fountains.  I still can't wrap my head around that!

Bormio is a quaint ski town in the Italian Swiss Alps. It has so much charm and character!  Here are some pictures from around the city center.

Our trip to the Stelvio Pass was filled with bad weather…and bad pictures.  Here are a few from the Pass.

A church at the top of the mountain! Probably there so you can thank God you made it up safely…and pray that you make it down safely!
