I remember ...

The first time I went to Valle Ferrara searching for new canyons, I went up the valley since I became convinced that there was no canyons there.

20 years later my thoughts went to Valle Ferrara again: I didn't climb the whole valley and the canyon I was looking for might hide in the upper part.
So I returned to Valle Ferrara, and went up along the whole valley climbing the steep sides, because there were cascades in the bed though it has only a couple of short narrows. So I had been right: Valle Ferrara was not a true canyon.

Once at home, I reflected if it would be worth descending the valley along the bed ... It would have required a few rappels and downclimbings ...
