This Sunday the weather is not the best, but forecasts assured us that we would have the whole sunny morning. Riale, the last village of Formazza valley in north Piedmont, is completely covered in snow. The group of snowshoes hikers, is happy and motivated to reach the beautiful Valrossa.
Mount Priafaia is a small but extremely scenic summit in the Monte Beigua Natural Park in Liguria. From this peak during the clear winter days you can admire both the Alps and the sea in the same time thanks to the dry winter air. The name is difficult to pronounce for an Italian, who knows for a foreigner! The name means stone of the beeches: Pria means stone while Faia means beech in an ancient local dialect.
