OUR SUMMER HIKES

It’s already the middle of October and that means the trekking season high in the mountains is almost over. This past Sunday, October 12th was the last day for alpine bus service. I planed to take the opportunity to go to Lucomagno, but it rained cats and dogs through the whole weekend. Hopefully, we’ll be able to explore a few more trails before snow hits mountains of Ticino. Now, that the summer is over, it’s time to recap our trail adventures from the past months.

People following me on Facebook tend to think that we spend all our time in the mountains. This is most certainly not true, but even I have the impression that we’ve been out a lot this season. Back in June I had an ambitious plan to go to the mountains every single week, alternating between easy and more strenuous hikes, but it didn’t work out. By the middle of the summer we’ve been to the mountains only twice. Most of the time we stayed home because of the stormy weather but also because D. was busy with his research. Sticking to the original plan didn’t make sense anymore, and so later when weather permitted we explored trails from the top of my list, those that require more effort and time. In total since June we only hiked seven times including a day hike in Sweden. Well, seven doesn’t sound like much, but all of them have been so wonderful, that it feels like we’ve seen a lot.

Here is a list of our hikes since my last post. I will publish more details on them in the next few weeks.

  1. А ты не считала, сколько всего нахайкала в км?:) или в вертикальных км?:) Да, это у меня любовь к циферкам:)

    • Я тоже люблю! Гармин мне все посчитал: с начала года нахайкали 291,08 km, суммарный подьем 16,389 км. А у тебя сколько?
