Along Eruption 2002


P1010612During the trip of Sicily on Horseback from Madonie Park to Etna we are now  crossing the eruption of 2002 at 2.000 meters of altitude.

It is an unforgettable experience to cross this lava flow on horseback during a perfect day like we had during the first trip in June after to be forced, two weeks earlier,  to go back to the main trail at 1.600 meters due too much snow.  The plants of Astragalus aetnensis full of flowers of Cerastio aetnensis during june given a real show of colours in contrast with the dark black of the naked lava. All riders remained astonished all along this incredibly suggestive trail.
