canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Fosso della Mola
At the end of Salto valley, a few kilometers from town of Rieti, there is an unusual canyoning place. The peculiar feature is pudding-rock in huge compact layers, giving landscape peculiar shapes and colors. Moreover pudding is also tender for water, so every little stream can dig a canyon. That's why we find a very high concentration of canyons here!
Fosso della Mola has the widest basin among streams in Balzi area, and this makes it the little aquatic jewel of the area. It features splendid erotions in pudding rock, pools and cascades in an unique variety. It features also a very charming tunnel under a chaos of boulders.
I remember ...
Normally you can't see canyons of Balzi area from the outside, because they are hidden by woods and perspective. Your eyes see nothing more than a wooden valley, similar to thousands of valleys in Appennino. But sometimes a change in point of view may reveal a different reality.
