From wind mills along the mountain slopes to a lighthouse!

Today the weather was fine with down in the village nice temperatures and not too much wind. Now I would like to do what I had been up to last Tuesday, September 24th, but what I have skipped for the concert by the Suvorov Cadet’s Band: to go with the gondola from Andermatt by the middle station Nätschen to the end station Gütsch, from there by foot over the Höhenweg to close by the mountain top of the Schneehüenerstock, then to go down with another gondola and via the Oberalp Pass back by train to Andermatt.

The Karst: over rocks and though forests

Today Stage B2 led from Bagnoli della Rosandra, where yesterday I ended my hike, to Opicina, a small town on the mountain ridge to the west of Trieste, over a distance of approximately 13 kilometres. The weather was nice for walking and 09.40 hrs I got on the Line 40 bus that took me along the scenic route, well-known by now, to Bagnoli in the Val Rosandra Valley (it was a Saturday and the bus did not pass through the industrial areas).
