I remember ...

It was a fast trip! The approach path, clearly visible and free of annoying vegetation, brought us sooner than expected in the heart of the solitary valley of Tiglia. Going down the valley we came soon to a narrow whose stateliness we did not expect. And soon the narrow gave way to a steep slope of debris that took us at the end of the trip sooner than we expected.

We would certainly appreciated a longer canyoning trip ... but the beauty of what we had seen and lived in the half-day there was enough anyway!
