weekends in Italy: Gran Paradiso
nice long weekend in the Gran Paradiso National Park, July 2003
di S. Grato
worthy lunch spot in the Valgrisenche. Just instruct your porters and personal
aides to start up from the SW end (1920m) of the Lago di
Beauregard (that's the real name, tho' it sounds like one of Bret Maverick's
cousins) and schlep the chilled chicken jellies and paté and basket of
choice breads and selection of wines steeply up via the . . .
Alpage La Bemaz (2000m)
points out the purple loosestrife for the folks back home in Wisconsin
hut at Alpage Revera-basse (2153m), just before things really start to get beautiful.
the cute little bridge, on the way to the pleasant lunch spot at S. Grato, somewhere
the Lago di S. Grato (2466m), preparing to be lunched at.
a nice lunch spot out of the wind but still in full view of the grand peaks, etc.
spot, good choice.
around the lake of San Grato
to go back now and see if we can still get in on some of the Genzianella's ample
downward route from Grato's lakey fastness
