This is a portion of the town of Monterosso, the Northern most town in Cinque Terre, a set of five towns on the Eastern coat of Italy. The previous afternoon had been rainy and we canned our plans to hike down into one of the towns (blind, as in no hotel reservations) and instead stayed nearby in LaSpezia. The day of the hike was nasty looking for much of the day, but we never got rained on.
There are two longer hikes (of four) which are the first two when traveling south. You can see the trail heading out of town on the right. It doesn’t stay that well established for long and it gains a lot of elevation relative to the towns which are all effectively at sea level. If I had to guess, I’d say we got to about the elevation of the bridge that is seen in the upper left, although on the other side of that ridge.
I think this is a better picture than yesterday’s, so I feel I’ve kept my promise.
