Hiking Monte Boglia in winter

Here are some photographs from one of our winter hikes. The route was pretty simple: Village of Brè (790m) – Monte Boglia (1516m) – Alpe Bolla (1129m) – Village of Brè. It was a very pleasant hike although the trail from Alpe Bolla to Brè was demanding: quite steep and covered with about 30 cm of fallen leaves.
