2023 06 17 Alpe Adria trail day 10
Well the bad news first. The Alpe Adria trail has ended for us . The good news: but not the ride itself. We just have to realize that it still is to early to ride above 2700 m, due to the snow that fell in May and that has not melted yet. That means that tonight we will decide on a new route back to San Jon in Scuol Swizerland. We have covered 400 km in 10 days not counting elevation. And the horses are doing great. Today we walked down from Lienzer hut to Lienz and then trottert up another 25 km till we reached Abfaltersbach in the Draw River Valley. We met a couple riders standing on a bank in the river and the told us where to find a place for the horses. The ladies at the stables were all amazed at our adventures and tried to find accommodations for us to no avail.
We showered the horses and put them in a fenced corals with water and hay while we went for a restaurant to take an internal shower.
We will be sleeping outside.
