Hi Walkies,

Northern Ticino will be cloudy, with chance of rain on Sunday, and Saturday hazy, with limited visibility. Not ideal for our plan. So, we change to Saturday, and go further south: the famous Monte Tamaro, but from the back side, Alpe di Neggia. We will meet for coffee at the ritrovo Alpe di Neggia, then up to Tamaro, from there we will continue to Monte Gradiccioli, and circle back to Alpe di Neggia.
