I was in Italy a few weeks ago on business and went on a run from the village of Monterosso to the village of Vernazza. It goes over a mountain between the two villages. Cori and I did this as a hike during our honeymoon and I decided to run it this time. Here are my photos.
The Ligurie Sea under Monterosso.
A small church on the way up the mountain
St. Francis (San Francisco's patron Saint)
A small cemetary on the mountain side
My reward - grappa in the setting sun.
