Hearty Welcomes & Salutations! Originally an action-packed travel blog from a globe-trotting Scotsman, An Ache for the Distance has, over the years, slowed down (I post less often), mellowed out (domestic life has found it's way way on here) and become more of an expat/photo blog. Take a look around, leave a comment and share the love if you like something.

Lago di Pilato Hike

Sibillini National Park yesterday, we started off from the sleepy group of houses which call themselves Foce and slogged our way up to Lago di Pilato at 1,940m.

It took me three hours to reach the lake (lago) but if she'd gone alone, Mischa could've managed it in two. She spent a lot of time patiently waiting for me to catch my breath and keep trudging upwards.

Pilato lake is the only place in the world where you can find a particular type of microscopic prawn and as such, dogs are forbidden from entering the water or even entering the surrounding area.  So if anyone from Sibillini mountain rangers is reading this, Mischa definitely didn't go for a dip...
