Plans were optimistic, 5 days in Ticino (CH) and 3 days at Garda (IT).. hiking, biking, canyoning, discovering.. but the weather was as dynamic as our ‘program’, we got it all, snow, rain, wind, sun… in all possible combinations.
After all we managed to hike to Monte Cimetta where it would be most logically to took the skis with us as there was from 5-40cm of fresh snow. On the last day in Ticino we actually decided to do what we came for to this valley – canyoning. We went to see Cresciano canyon which was one of the safest to do as the water is regulated by the hydropower plant. So swimming suits and neopren.. checked.
The only not used (and dry) toy in the car were bikes. And we used them on the first day at Garda. It was actually the best day in the whole week so it would be sin not to go up there, to see the lake from above and snowy Altisimo and Baldo on the other side.
To avoid Garda’s traditional May monsoon we hit the road back home a day earlier. Don’t know if I really learned something, as I think I will try to put Garda into May agenda even next year, overall it was 50% of good weather, so.. why not. After all, looking at the photos it really does look nice. 🙂
