Just back from a weekend in the Mountains with my Italian friend Mikele. Had the place more or less for ourselves most of the time, the Japanese hiking hoards didn't risk missing the afternoon train heading back to the city and Sunday morning was completely deserted up till late morning. Great stuff to be able to head out with just a tarp, sleeping bag and bivouac off-trail on a lone ridge. Spectacular mood in the forest between dusk till dawn.
Who doesn't like trees?
