Spring is not here yet, so we are still enjoying the winter and it’s unpredictable weather.
It goes from snow, to rain, fog and sun.
The sky changes color every single day, it is simple beautiful.
Sunday we had a very fun walk under falling snow.
It was incredible how much snow was coming down, in silent, dry, crispy snowflakes.

Snowy prealpi bresciane

Today we putted our snowshoes on and made a crazy walk (yes, we almost lost ourselves) in the snow in Val da Sacco.

It was very difficult because the snow was virgin, nobody had walked before us making paths.

Every single footstep was so heavy, and we all admired Simoo doing the most of the tracking.

It tried to do some myself, but had to leave the command to Simoo after only 10min of walk.

The view was incredible, sky blue and the snow so shiny white.

It was good to come home and find lunch ready.
