canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
From the two small villages of Poggio Murella and Capanne, a stone's throw from the thermal baths of Saturnia, you see the gentle and relaxing landscape
of tilled grounds and hills of the Albegna valley.
I remember ...
The car plays a fundamental role in canyoning. The gorges are never near your house (in truth they are, but you have already descended that gorges, several times). So to descend a canyon you normally run 150-200 km in a day, but in some cases 500-600 km (for longer distances you should stay overnight). Since cars are subject to breakdowns and accidents, it sometimes happens that you pass the whole day waiting for the tow truck and your car to be repaired (if this happens on Sunday you might have to wait more than one day ...).
That time we had two cars coming from different places, getting there on different routes.
While we were traveling, Paolo phoned us that his car had left him on the road.
We resigned ourselves to doing the trip without Paolo and the others, but one hour later Paolo called us again telling us he was going to resolve the fault
by replacing the battery.
