March 23rd, 2010: Rifugio Menaggio

In Arese I joined my older brother, Mason, and his family. The stars had aligned and Mason happened to have today off and was kind enough to plan a snowy adventure for the day. If only all my snowy adventures began with lunch on the shores of Lake Como, which is only an hour or so north of Milano.

After lunch in Menaggio, we drove to the hills above Breglia to start our hike towards Rifugio Menaggio. (For those that can read Italian, or like pretty pictures, there is an official website). It was a good hike with some fairly steep sections and snow banks in the shaded valleys. The views were great at the top but sadly the rifugio was closed and there would be no fine dining.
