canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Forra di Morcone (Torrente San Marco)
The Samnites were the first to build a fortified village on that rocky hill on the eastern slopes of the Matese Range, and since then the village grew and was
inhabited for millennia, with the name of Morcone.
It is a perfect place to live and prosper, overlooking fertile hills rich in water, defended on the southern side by the narrow gorge where of San Marco creek,
whose perennial waters can supply energy to the mills ...
I remember ...
I know, I need a bit of canyoning in the weekend to send away a bit of the great work-related stress of this wearing year.
But when the canyon is 3 hours drive from home (so 6 hours of driving overall) and the days are not so long and therefore I have to get up early, I have some doubts.
And when I feel a slight headache that becomes stronger and stronger as I walk through the canyon, the doubt risks turning into the belief that this time I would have better
done something simple near my home ...
At home I look at the photos and relive the various moments of the descent ...
The headache passed and the sensations remain: the embrace of water, the gaze that turns looking for an anchor point, the attention not to lose balance on that slippery
rock, the sound of jumping down water ...
