High-plains drifting

After a famous black-and-white feature spread in a British national paper - probably the Independent - I decided that this was one of the most enticing landscapes of Italy with its emptiness and soft curved lines.
I actually visited it en route to Greece with my friend Heinrich in July 1995, but he is no walker, and so the high-plains drifting will have to wait for another occasion.

It was my best friend Herve who actually went off in June 1998 to discoer the Plano Alto, to my great envy, after I had a motorbike accident in Florence that put me out of action. This is one of the photos he took from June 1998.

VT member Pallina (living in Reggio-Emilia) has the best VT page on this place and its whereabouts. ...
