Day 10: Rifugio St Anna over a Pass and down into the Valle Stura

Sant'Anna at 2010 m to Sambuco at 1200 m.
20 km, 800 m up and 1800 m down.
Pass at 2311 m and the lowest point was 1100 m in the Valle Stura.

 When you start at 2,300 meters, the climb is not that bad.
 The descent, however, went on forever, for 1,500 meters and almost 20 kilometers.

 The transplanted German woman below talked to us on our lunch break about politics and life.
She invited us to her trailer for lunch, but we had to keep going downhill to Valle Stura.
