I remember ...

When I went exploring the Fosso della Pasquarella I was looking for canyons with falls, slots and pools ... but the canyon was dry, instead, with few falls and narrows. I appreciated the beauty of environment, but as a canyoning route it was a little thing.
Only ten years later I began to understand that Pasquarella gorge is the center of a small universe made up of rocky walls, inaccessible woods, forgotten paths, and canyons that descend steeply towards the main gorge.
