Avisio Valley

 

A bit of a cheat this. We'd run out of walks from the book so we just followed the path down river to the somewhat larger village of Moena. It's about 10 miles and mainly downhill. It was notable for two things:

we spent the first two hours largely in shade whereas the opposite bank was in bright sunshine. The sun wasn't high enough to light up our side. Beryl was making dire threats about what she would do to me if it stayed that way all day.

we could pick out all sorts of details of previous walks

For all that it is a bit tracky. There are some better sections notably as you leave Pozzo and the final stretch to Moena. On both of these you climb a bit and get better views of the valley. Not that I took any photos all day.

Oh yes; we did get sunshine - in fact it became quite hot so we indulged in posh ice-cream in Moena. Then a quick bit of tourist gawping, stopping in some small gardens with figures depicting a local legend (we couldn't work out what) and the bus back.
