Mount Crocione. The climb is difficult, yet it is one of the most wonderful experiences one can have.

This is me enjoying the marvelous view from Mount Crocione after a 3-hour walk (1641 m.)

  • A tunnel runs up to the top of Mount Crocione, where the wild and solitary environment instills a sense of anxiety and suspense.
  • A village in ruins near the top of Mount Crocione. The impressive outline of Mount Legnone and Mount Disgrazia (3678 m) covered with snow stand out against the background.

The unfailing impression of “a sea of mountains” inspired by the sight of the Lugano Lake against the afternoon light.

Rock cliffs overlooking Sasso Rancio, above Menaggio.

The Menaggio shelter dominated by mount Grona. A sweet gentle horse along the trail.

The Bregagno crag, at 2000 mt. of altitude, offers a spectacular view over most part of the Lario district.

Upper Lario. Up here, in total solitude, spirituality is no longer an abstract concept. Meditation, nostalgia, memories of the past… a world out of time.

Upper Lake Como and Mount Legnone.

White and black are the colors that intensify the solemnity of the Alps, where Mount Manduino stands like a stone sentinel at the far end. It's the end of the Larian world. The small lake of Mezzola
also be seen in the picture.

The Manduino (2888 mt.).

The "Tracciolino".

Caves and tunnel on the "Tracciolino".

The end of the Lake Como, with Mera River and Lake Mezzola.
