The next day we cycled
through the Monti Sibillini National Park. It was hard
work, but very beautiful, the highlight of
our cycling trip.
When we started it was very misty, but eventually we
got above it.
At first the valley
was a blanket of cloud, but as the morning progressed
it gradually cleared.
There is a restaurant
called the Rifugio Perugia just before the top and
enjoyed a pleasant lunch before going over the rim
and into Piano Grande.
Monti Sibillini was originally a volcano. Piano Grande
is a large flat plain that now occupies the bowl.
