I remember ...

The interest in the naturalistic beauties around Rome is leading more and more people to discover (or rediscover) wild and unknown places, often of great beauty. The time is ripe for society to become aware of such beauties, and so it is now only a matter of time for Tom rather than Dick to notice that there is a waterfall there, or even a gorge. And if Tom waits to go, Dick also notices it, independently, and goes first, provided that in the meantime Harry hasn't noticed it too ...
Because there are now many who appreciate this kind of places and pay attention to those elements of the territory or of society that allow to locate them. But still almost no one looks for canyoning routes: canyoning remains confined to a playful-adrenaline dimension unrelated to the discovery of the territory.
