#1: Looking to the south

(visited by Barbara Loebau)

07-Apr-2002 -- (Looking to the south #1) Having spent a night in our tent in the "Valle di Luna" (the moon valley), an area covered with enormous rocks we followed the road leading from Tempio Pausania via Aggius to Viddalba, but left it when we reached the chapel "San Pietro di Ruda". A small but asphalted road turns to the north with a lot of ups and downs, an exhausting job with a heavy loaded tandem. But this road brought us close to the CP, up to 800m we were able to drive.

We left our bike at the gate of a small farmhouse and followed the direction which showed the GPS. At the right hand side there was a forest, but we went along a fire flight corridor as long as possible. Finally we turned to the right (northward) into the forest down the hill. We passed a dead cow and struggled through the undergrowth, but at the end we reached the fire flight corridor for the second time, which lead us downhill along a stone wall. According to the GPS-Signal, the CP was at the other side of the wall at a distance of 10 meters. We took some photos of the place, nothing spectecular compared with the picturesque surrounding. The way back to our bike was (as all confluence visitors do know) much easier - a forest track leaded back to the small road. As a service for all CP-visitors: there is an agritourismo (holidays on a farm) at the small road, where you can stay overnight if you come late and don´t have a tent with you.
