Day 7 - October 3 - Refuge de Petra Piana to Vizzavona

There were two possible ways to go for the first section of the walk. A low level route (the GR 20) or a high level variante. I chsoe the high level way - and after setting out I thought this was stupid. As soon as I had traversed onto the ridge - I found myself in very windy conditions. But mostly the  ridge was easy and open walking.

Above - the ridge continued being mainly easy - but there were tricky sections like the peak in the middle.

Then the two routes joined back up and then there was a big climb to the Crête de Muratello.

Day 8 - October 4 - Vizzavona to Bocca di Verdi

This was a day a bad weather - cold winds, a little bit of rain and mist. It wasn't too bad as the standard track went mainly through forest. But I missed out on doing  a high level variante via Mt Renoso. But the forest was very beautiful.
