We arrived in Stresa and headed towards the cable car that takes you up one very tall mountain to Mottarone, which appears to be a ski resort in the winter. There were two sections of cable cars and then one final chair lift to the very top.

Looking down on Lake Maggiore and the islands within the lake was quite spectacular. There were snow covered mountains nearby and beautiful, if somewhat cloudy, skies overhead. This did keep the temperatures really pleasant!

A special congratulations goes out to my niece, Melissa, this weekend on her college graduation! What an accomplishment!

And, wishing all the mothers out there a very enjoyable Mother's Day, especially my mom! See you again in about 7 weeks! Here's a special flower for you! Love you!
