canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Fosso di Santopadre (Rio Armucci)
The sweet hills of Arpino and Santopadre, covered by gardens and olive-groves, are much like the hills of Umbria. Villages made of stone, farms and fields kissed by the sun ... as for Umbria hills you would never suppose there could be a canyon in a place like this.
But it is.
Beautiful, funny and not hard, that's how this canyon is.
I remember ...
In those days I was working at my graduation thesis, and I used to work late at night at the university ...
That night I worked till dawn, but I had planned to go exploring Santopadre canyon and I didn't want to give up.
I went home at dawn, prepared the backpack, and left by motorcycle.
The worst came while returning to town: I was going to fall asleep while driving my motorcycle! I don't know how I realized I was going to hit the guard-rail on right side of the highway, but I realized just in time!!
