Exploring: The Nebrodi Mountains

Daily hikes past cows, up and over rocky paths, following the Troina River, stopping to pick flowers, throw rocks into the water, and admire the striking vistas. Big, green, rocky hills covered with wild teasel, ferula, and trees with yellow leaves. The rainy season has started in Sicily which means everything is finally greening up. Sudden rains rinsing away the dusty, browns of summer.  Even after two years of living in the Mediterranean climate, this abrupt appearance of vibrant greens never ceases to amaze and thrill me. Autumn in the Nebrodi Mountains is invigorating and muddy.
