men's step mountain,
to go for a walk in the woods of Mount Amiata you must get ready so as to
face the trip comfortably and more agreeably:
clothes are usually putted on, supplied with a solid pair of
mountaineering boots; it is good also to have a hat and wind-jacket
putted inside the rucksack.
useful for the trip it
will be an alpenstock to make the hard task lighter along the steepest
paths, or to find wood-fruits or mushrooms before
to use the hands, because it would be dangerous in the event of a
hidden under the leaves
you wish to gather wood-fruits or mushrooms (Mount Amiata is rich in
boletus and other edible species), it is indispensable a wicker basket
lined with chestnut-leaves or ferns. To do not forget that to can
gather mushroom there is need to have an authorisation
given by town-police before to go for a walk
of photography and “bird-watching” surely will take with them a
camera to immortalize unique scenes
and moments. On Mount Amiata it is possible to make photographic
safaris particularly for floral species, someone
very rare, which it is
better to do not gather, but to immortalize
in a picture. Binoculars are very useful
to watch the birds and to appreciate,
by the panoramic points, the valleys below, rich of enchantment
equipment will be not complete without a flask filled with the pure
and cool water of Amiata and a good packed meal carefully prepared
will be a more pleasure for your walk on the mountain
- All it
has to do is remember to do not mistreat the nature around us, leaving
untouched and free from our rubbish, which we will have the wisdom to gather
in a small bag and to throw into the first dustbin on hand. To pay
attention to free flames and to cigarette ends: it would be only one
to ravage millenarian forests.
