Trekking the Alta Via Dei Monti Liguri – Day 6

The horror (whose idea was this anyway)

Ascent 1495m. Distance – 500 miles (felt like), 24.5km (actual)

The day started by slipping into the stream as I refilled water. Wet , bruised and with a little blood I looked on this tenderly later in the day!

Some days are just tough. Hopefully now past tense for the trip. My entire body was no lover talking to me. Screaming would be more accurate. I think the stream incident put me in a psychological downer.

The ascents were vertiginous. As were the descents. Probably good I was in the clouds as thee drop a metre to my left was endless. Even my beloved beech trees seemed more foreboding than til now.

So what was good? Well it didn’t rain (didn’t need to I was already wet). I am staying in Barbagelata – what an awesome name. I didn’t take a step to the left. And it didn’t rain. Cheese puff crisp things before even more noodles (I also snuck in a bit of chocolate with them). And I spoke to Mog.

Jeez – all that good. I’ll stop whinging.

Ps late update – the lady with the key to the Refugio took pity on me on the porch, opened up and let me stay inside – for free!! Life is good.
