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.

Re: magra

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.

Re: magra

Sorry, I made a comment in italian, just because that picture was taken in Italy...:-)))))

Re: Well done

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
