ENTERING 1,A GRAVE FROM A HIGHER VILLAGE La Grave is a village of 999 inhabitants, picturesquely perched on a terrace above the valley of the Romanche. It is a favorite point of departure for high Alpine excursions, the Pelvoux group of the Alps of Dauphine being in full view across the valley. Photo by Donald McLeish ON THE ROAD FROM TOBLACH TO CORTINA The highway between Toblach and Cortina, crossing Tre Croci (Three Crosses) Pass, skirts the beautiful light-green lakelet Misurina, whose waters are 5,760 feet above the sea. The pastoral scenes in these remote highlands are charming in their quiet and simplicity.
