Late autumn hike: Monti Alburni

Late October … the last tired leaves falling from the branches of the beech trees. With the days getting sensibly shorter and the circle of life approaching its nadir, I thought it time for a long and meditative hike. The decision fell on the mountains of the Alburni range, in particular: Monte Panormo, Monte Tirone and Monte Urto.

Here some impressions from a long day spent in silence under a seemingly boundless horizon…
