canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
The systematic search of the waterfalls in the area of Sersale-Zagarise is part of the wider tourism development of the area's
natural beauties, carried out by some enthusiasts who have engaged in the activity of environmental hiking guide.
So the waterfalls of Finoieri are much less known and visited than the Uria falls. And they were never been rappelled before. So Andrea and I went there, discovering the longest canyoning trail in Sila mounts.
I remember ...
Waterproof cameras are very useful in canyoning, but sometimes they make you damn. The day before we had done another canyon descent, and at night we had slept in tents on the Sila, without being able to dry our equipment. The result was a terrible stain of moisture formed on the inside of the protective glass of the lens of my Canon D20. I could not even take a clear photo. Fortunately, Andrea had a camera that is not waterproof, so it was not wet and did not have that problem, otherwise we would not have neither picture nor a video of that day.
Once home, however, the moisture did not go away even with hours of exposure under the sun. So I decided to disassemble the
casing of the D20, and the reason for that terrible moisture became clear: water had passed beyond the protection glass
coming from glass' edge that, unbelievable, did not have a rubber seal!
Disconcerting, really. However, the camera did serve me so I had to find a solution to make it really waterproof: glueing the glass with a waterproof glue.
