On Alpe di Siusi
16.07.2015 - 16.07.2015 26 °C
Peter's words of advice for today,
"Today you be a cow. Be lazy, go slow, rest and eat. Worry about nothing and have clean thinking."
The Alpe di Siusi is the largest alpine meadow in the Alps. It is a cultural meadow created by necessity hundreds of years ago. The meadows were planted so the farmers would have food for their cows in the winter. We saw the hard working farmers at various stages of harvesting today as we walked like a cow along the gentle path. We are on this easier hike today because of the expected thunderstorms. The air is heavy and there are clouds everywhere.
The weather here has been tropical. They have never seen it so warm. On a typical day in July, there may be a bit of ice on the rocks and you can see your breath in the morning as you start your hike. Gradually warming up as the day progresses. I swear we bring the hot weather with us in Europe but Peter say that is giving us way too much power. Peter is a deep thinker and is teaching us as much about life as he is about hiking.
