From Spoleto to Sulmona it was a white knuckled ride .. Up and up again .. Let’s see the mountains we said …through national parks with 6000ft snow covered mountains all around us .. Across to Monte di Spoleto where the mountains open onto a high alp like plain with every spring flower you can name
Down again to the earthquake hit L’Aguila where the old town is still a no go area .. Still very broken after five years .. Seemingly this plateau is called Italy’s Little Tibet .. Wolves inhabit Parco della Majella with its high altitudes .. We didn’t see any !!!
Down again to Sulmona which nestles in a valley with the Morrone Massif as a back drop .. This pre Roman village is famous for its “confetti” the sugared almonds given to guests at Italian weddings .. It’s market day tomorrow so off we will trot to buy some more edible goodies for our house/ cat sitters.. Grins
