... village with an ice cream shop, cheese store and park to chill in. We had an awesome time, and I took way more pictures than I needed to. Although the views from the mountain were breathtaking and the village was sick, I think the highlight of the day was lunch. The coordinators anticipated more of us coming on the hike (there are about 40 in our group now, and only about 14 people showed up), so they ordered more food than necessary. We started with a lot of bread, then ...
