Bolzano and the erdpyramids

Yesterday we had a long coach drive up to Bolzano in the Sud Tirol. The trip was long and a little dull but the town was lovely once we were there. After that we went up a steep road which wound its way up a mountain to Soprabolzano where we board the historic Renon railway which took us higher still. Then we came a little further down to a place where we could view the extraordinary rock formations called the Erdpyramids.

Now for the pictures:

I'm really enjoying your journey! I've been to some of the places you mention but I don't think anyone ever directed us to the Erdpyramids. Lovely rock formations!

The Erdpyramids were interesting and really unusual

Keep the photos coming! It is raining here, typical Bank Holiday weather. So, it is good to be enjoying a virtual trip with such lovely views.

Oh, I love that Castel. I love the simplicity and strength of it. It has such clean lines.

The rocks are amazing!
