canyon exploring with Michele Angileri

Forra della Linguessa

Surely the most hidden narrows I've ever seen ... You can't see the canyon even if you know it is there, amidst low and almost flat hills. No one could find it without being guided by the explanations of some people knowing exactly where it is. I was guided bythe words of Enrico and Filiberto, two attenders of the school where I were working as a teacher.

Linguessa is not a great canyon, absolutely ... but it is beautiful. In wet seasons it is fed by the powerful jet of emerald water falling down the cascade of Linguessa (may be the most beautiful cascade in Lazio).

In summer canyon of Linguessa becomes dry, like most torrents in this area.

I remember ...

Stream was dry, shit! it had some flow only one week before! Down in the narrows river bed had many fishes dead, little and big, dead and not stinky. Right at the bottom of the waterfall one inch of water and mud and a lot of dying fishes inside, condamned to death in one day or two. So ...
we catched them by hands! and when at home I ate the most exquisite trout it can be!!
