Hi Walkies,

So, finally weather forecast for this weekend is taking shape: Sunday looks much better that Saturday, and warm enough for a hike with jumping in the water. Twice: half-way and at the end of the tour. Yupeee!!! Usually, in the summer, we go much higher, this walk will be in lower elevation, so a bit more sweating, but water to cool off. Not into hiking? Come meet us at the waterfall after the hike!

Giro del Salto. We did it once, in the fall, and said, we must jump in these waters once in the summer.

We will meet in the village Maggia, and then walk up into the Valley of Salto. After a steady walk uphill, we will cross the Salto, and stop for a dip in the beautiful ponds, and picnic. Then, we will come back down on the opposite side of the valley, and go see, and feel the big waterfall of the Salto.

Difficulty: T2 (medium mountain hike)
