canyon exploring with Michele Angileri

Gola di Valle Contieri

Fosso Contieri is a tributary of Melfa Gorges. It is a canyon with low walls, alternating narrows and open parts, rich in beautiful erosions. It is nice especially in rainy winters, when water flows through the whole canyon.
Fosso Contieri is made by two branches joining together at the half of the canyon: the interesting one (more beautiful) is the right branch (face to river Melfa).

One only wrong note: trash. Water remains clean but it would be more nice without seeing plastic bottles or tires near the pools.
