Hot! Photo of the Day: Got Your Goat?

I’m always discovering different side trips to take from Finale – whether it’s up to France, down the coast to the Cinque Terre, or island hoping by way of ferry. With friends in town, we were looking for something different to do on our climbing rest days. The islands were too far, so we headed north to the Italian Alps. The Alpi Maritime are only 2+ hours by train and offer spectacular hikes between remote refugio huts in the summer, and Alpine skiing in the winter. There are also interesting mountain goats like the Ibex and the Chamoix. We made our way to the small town of Entracque with hopes of seeing some of these. No sooner had we gotten off the bus in the wrong town of Valdieri then we ran into a man and his goats wandering down the streets.
