I remember ...

Everytime I was passing on the road to Micigliano I told to myself: I should try descending this valley. And a moment later: well, there's probably nothing interesting here ... I will do when I have nothing better to do.

That's why it took 20 years! I did it in a hot afternoon of June, alone ... I didn't want my friends wasting a day in another uninteresting place.

But instead, unexpectedly, I find myself rappelling an almost uninterrupted sequence of cascades, while the stream was becoming tighter and darker, and the hours were passing more quickly than I had imagined ...
