Friday 10 July 2009 - Day 6 - Edelweiss guesthouse, Limonetto to Locanda del Parco, Palanfré (1379 metres) [pictured]

Stats: 12km, 1000 metres ascent, 7 hrs including 1.5 hours stops.

Another great day out, albeit in cloudier weather.

The forgoing postcards give an overview of the day, and a web page covering the whole trip will be posted in due course.

This posto tappa is, as ever, very friendly and has fed us well. We are the 11 Inglese - nobody else is here. It's strange not to have encountered any Germans on the GTA, as we saw quite a few of them last year, but absolutely no English.

The summit book at Monte Ciotto Mieu (2378 metres - high point of the trip - visited by Sue, Jenny and me) was empty, as last year, and the scrap of paper we put in it last year was the freshest on view. So we updated it....

.....boring English .... the only people who can be bothered to visit this god-forsaken place. Together with a rare specimen of Tyrolean Fritillary - what a thrill!

The descent to Palanfré was quite fun as well.
