Day 12: From Gardetta down to Valle Maira and up the other Side

Rifugio Gardetta at 2335 to San Martino inf at 1400.
19 km, 400 m up and 1400 m down.
Descended to the Bal Maira at 1000 m and then climbed back up to 1400 m.

 This was a long hot hike.  The slope on the north side of Valley Maira, however, had its rewards.
We walked surrounded by butterflies, interesting plants, old stone dwellings, and there was a fountain at the other end.
