On our way to our first hotel in the Dolomites this past May, we approached the small town of Borca di Cadore (population 809). That was our first look at the magnificent Mount Antelao, which is the highest mountain in the Dolomites (aka King of the Dolomites), measuring a little over 10,000 feet. The only problem is that the mountain, along with the low clouds, seemed to be playing a game of hide and seek with us. At first glance, all we saw was a glimpse of the peak, but then the clouds would move slightly, giving us a better look before the clouds covered up again. We pulled over and decided to play a waiting game with it. I think this was the most the mountain wanted us to see before we decided to find another mountain to play with.
