If one were to compare this view with, say, my college in Maine's view of the White Mountains, the American mountains are about 20 miles closer but appear maybe half as big as these Italian Dolomite Alps.
That's cuz they just about are! The highest point in the Dolomites is Mount Marmolada (pictured in the background here, if I'm guessing right), which is about 11,000 ft. tall, making our Mount Washington at 6,288 ft. seem a little puny in comparison!
This photo below is from the splendid, not-to-be-missed blog Venice Daily Photo, which seems to be back in full swing after a brief hiatus. Enjoy!!
