The last wild lily

It was going to be a long day, as we had to start from the bottom again – via another path – hike through two passes before reaching Capanna Cadagno. This mountain hut has recently been beautifully renovated and is widely known for its delicious cuisine.

At Porta Crocera, the first pass which overlooks Acquacalda, a ProNatura centre, we were lucky to catch the last white wild lily. They are in full bloom in early July and cover entire fields. Down and back up to Passo del Sole.

 

Le dernier lys sauvage

Cette journée allait être longue puisque nous devions à nouveau commencer depuis le village – par un autre sentier -, passer par deux cols avant d’atteindre la Cabane Cadagno. Celle-ci a été magnifiquement rénovée et est célèbre dans toutela région pour sa délicieuse cuisine.
A Porta Crocera, le premier col, qui surplombe Acquacalda et son centre ProNatura, nous avons pu voir le dernier lys sauvage de la saison. Ils fleurissent au début du mois de juillet et couvrent des champs entiers. Descente puis remontée sur le Passo del Sole.
