My favourite views was when we pass over viaducts and could look back to see the carriages follow. There is 291 bridges and 91 tunnels we travel over and through during the day.

I ponder this as I continue on up the trail, pausing at ...
... up the narrowing gorge for a ways... then finally spot a pedestrian suspension bridge far below... I go to check it out and... sure enough, on the other side there's a magical trail winding up the gorge, with mysterious abandoned stone houses and rushing rapids squeezing between the giant boulders. It's not long before I reach my first mountain village: San Giagomo Filipo. A sizeable village built along the steep slopes. It doesn't seem to be just ...
