Some pictures from the excursion we made today (Sept 22, 2017) on mount Gran Sasso (btw, Gran = big, Sasso = rock) with our first and second-year students from MathMods and InterMaths (there were around 80 of us!).
We took an "EASY" path from Campo Imperatore up to Rifugio Duca Degli Abruzzi - surprisingly enough, there was already some snow up there (btw, it's at about 2,000 m asl). After that, we had an arrosticini barbecue at Fonte Vetica. Later in the afternoon we stopped by in the medieval village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, where we made our way through its narrow cobbled streets.
We hope everybody enjoyed the trip as much as we did! See you on the next trip.
