Restful day in the sacred forest

I declare this to be a Leopard Lizard. OK, it’s actually a Fire Salamander.

Day five: Camaldoli to Badia Prataglia 10.6 km (6.6 miles)

Some thundershowers brought rain and made walking a cool and damp delight. We made an intentionally late start so we could enjoy Camaldoli monastery a little longer, then we trudged up and down through the Sacred Forests to quiet Badia Prataglia. Tomorrow is the big climb to La Verna.

Pilgrim lineup. 

This is exactly how today looked. 

This too. 

We stay overnight tomorrow at the big, squarish mountain in the distance. 

Little Badia Prataglia.
