canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Gola di Finocchieto
The white and pink limestones of northwest Sabini Mounts are a good terrain for canyons. That's why by the village of Finocchieto (near Stroncone and Terni) we find 5 canyons. They share common features but each one has its own peculiarities, like different sons of the same parents.
One of these canyons ends its steep rugged way though rocks and mediterranean bush between the houses of Finocchieto. It has no name on maps, so let's call it simply "Finocchieto Canyon".
I remember ...
Backpacks were ready, and we were going to put car in a better point and start descending. But when I tried to start
car's engine I realized there was no current from battery. Something had gone wrong.
No time to waste. I opened bonnet to see which battery I had to buy and ... surprise! battery's cable had been cut by rust and vibrations.
I was able to repair it with the tools I had. Then came the time for Finocchieto Canyon!
