Another half hour passed as I made my way along this mountain path....or should I say crawled my way along! The path was narrow and the climb steep but the views were spectacular. Here is one of the many vistas I will one day put into paint. You can see Vernazza harbour about 1/3 down in this photo.
Here you can see how narrow the path is. This young girl literally went "out on a limb" to create a passing lane. You can't tell from this photo but the drop off was very very steep. I was quite happy to stay on the path!
Finally I could see Vernazza harbour. This little fishing village was a sight for sore eyes! If you look carefully you will see a stone tower on the highest building along the waters edge. My next photo was taken from the top of it. I still have about another half hour to hike ~ I am so glad I am almost there!
I made it! I am happy I did this hike but am I ever glad I can take the train back to
