Trekking on Grigna

These are the beautiful photos from the last trek of the year...
I couldn't do many trips while I was in Vipiteno and later in Val di Fassa for the study and above all because of the weather... so we decided to go on Grigna, the nearest mountain to Rho...
With don Emilio, my brother Luca, Alessandro, Gloria and Chiara we tried this tour.
I had never been on Grigna's rocks and it has been a very beautiful surprise to discover a great mountain just near home.
We went to Lecco and took Val Sassina, we reached Esino Lario and park the car.
We went at first to Bietti hut and took Alta Via delle Grigne!
In two hours from Bietti hut we were on the top of Grignone at Brioschi hut...
We descend to Bogani hut to regain Esino Lario and to come back.
It was a very beautiful trek, I'll repeat it for sure.

So these are the photos:

I'm back and my computer is dead!

Hi, finally I'm back after two weeks on the mountains!
I 've been by 4th to 16th August in Vipiteno and last week in Soraga (Val di Fassa).
I wanted to do a mountain trip with my brother Luca and my girlfriend Erica but we had bad weather, so with my parents we decided to stay in Soraga this week to do some trekking in the nearby mountains: Dolomiti!
Yesterday I was back, I put in order the clothes and the things we brought in vacation, and after we reconnected gas, TV, computer...
Luca has turned on the computer to check mail, but after the download of the mail... it freezes!
I thought it was a windows well known issue but at the restart the computer simply didn't work!
It's on without prompting anything, nor the BIOS, neither the memory check... the screen is BLACK, as in standby...
I tried everything: to unlink all the peripherals, to change the video adapter, to unmount rams and in the end I put the dedicated jumper for clear CMOS in it clear position... but nothing happened...
Tonight I will test the CPU on my parent's computer, which mainboard has soket 478 too!
Tomorrow I will go to Computer Shop to ask what this would be! But I'm almost sure that I had to change the mother-board... I found luckily the last soket 478 models... I hope they have some!
As soon as I can I will post my new photos from Vipiteno, and Val di Fassa.
see ya,
Andy

Trekking & Bike in Val Sesia

Last Sunday and Monday, I went to my friend Matteo's house in the mountains, Val Sesia.
On Sunday we had a walk on a mount in front of Monte Rosa, although there were some clouds, the panorama was very beautiful.
On Monday we had a nice trip by bike from the village of Scopa to almost the end of the valley: Mollia village, is the one before the last Alagna!
I'm very happy to had these opportunity to spend two days on the mountains: silence, nature, wind, sun, grass, rock, streams, steep slopes, and the great spaces of the valleys of the Alps, that's good after two months on the books!
Thank you "il Teo" for these very good days!
