Lago di Misurina

Today was a beautiful fall Columbus Day here in Cortina so we took a drive up to Lake Misurina. (We still celebrate American holidays, you know). We had been last year for the ice polo but obviously it's quite different when it's not frozen! Aside from ice polo, the lake was the site of the speed skating races during the 1956 Olympics - apparently they get more use out of it when it's frozen. We walked along the path all the way around the lake before heading back down to Cortina for a delicious lunch of pumpkin ravioli.
