canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Fosso Carapelle is a little creek that flows to Lake Turano. At one point of his short journey, however, it reaches the edge of a high cliff from
which precipitates with a sequence of cascades that, in the right season, offer a fascinating spectacle that can be seen from the hill in front.
I remember ...
Sometimes the names given to valleys and streams express the fear that these places instilled to the peasants and shepherds who lived near there.
Reading the name "Fosso Carapelle" the advice of the ancient inhabitants of the area came to me loud and clear: keep away, if you care for your life ("cara pelle").
Obviously the places that I seek are those from which the ancients stayed away, so ...
At last, of course, I found a solution (even a good one) but I've learned the lesson and I will underestimate a stream like Fosso Carapelle no more.
