GTA – Fondo to Piamprato

Day 21: 30 July 2019

The air was clear today.

Walking up a gentle valley beside a pretty stream. The pools were hard to resist for a swim, but I was worried I would lose my momentum.

At a small family farm I asked if I could buy cheese. One of the young sons disappeared into a cellar in the rocks and came back with a small round of cheese; “it is a bit young”. Both sons were shy. I bought half of the cheese. It made a good lunch.

It was a steep climb to Bocchetta delle Oche, 2,417 m.

On the way I met the men clearing the path. It is good to be able to thank those who make this possible and exchange a few words.
