Forni Glacier Panorama
Wonderful panorama of the Forni glacier, with Monte Vioz, Pizzo Taviela, San Matteo and Pizzo Tresero (all around 3600m). This viewpoint can be reached in about 1 hr from the Branca hut by an easy hike over a side moraine that's part of the Palon de la Mare ascent (from rif. Branca).

Nondimeno, con questa perspettiva la foto è bella...Ma questo ghiacciaio stà anche lui riducendosi in modo spaventoso.

You are right, when I was at the Gavia pass hut, I saw a black-and-white picture of the Forni glacier: it came all the way to the Forni hut itself!! Looking down the valleys and the moraines you can really see the extent of the damage.

Thank you for the nice words. I have now uploaded a larger version to Summitpost, this wasn't possible in the earlier version.

Cheers,

Rick
