From Acquasanta up to Cappella Baiarda and down to the shrine

Hiking from Acquasanta up to Cappella Baiarda featured plenty of sunshine, memorable group pictures, a mystical tree that filled us all with zen spirit, a few jaw-dropping views and plenty of sheep watching us. As for the way down to the shrine, uhm, could it possibly have been one of 5 deadly hikes in the history of the group? For sure, getting hit by a falling tree was something I didn’t quite expect. But then, after witnessing people getting sucked into a pit of brambles (#4 Rapallo-Montallegro), missing chains (#3 Cala degli Inglesi), slipping on the ice/losing their nails/lowering themselves down in a snow gorge to save a fallen hiking stick (#2: Crocetta Orero-Busalletta) and fleeing a shower of thunderbolts (#1: Mt Rossola, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwRRAMnmxBs ), I should not be surprised. But all’s well that ends well, and I’m glad that the “recovery rate” is always high! 🙂

PS: and we could even gain 9 years of indulgence! if we recited a Pater Ave Gloria on each step of the Holy Stairs to the shrine
