The Lago di Carezza (German: Karersee) is an emerald green mountain lake in the Dolomites in South Tyrol, Italy. It not only features an amazing emerald color: there is a legend and fairy tale too about it.
This winter in the Alps is very dry and warm. Because there is no snow it is excellent to do some hiking instead. I’m closing the year with the family in the Italian part of the Alps, and we visited today the Fane Alm, a seasonal alpine pasture. The most beautiful small alpine village I ever have seen. It is located at the top end of the valley of Vals, South Tyrol, Italy.
