Start of Apennine Hike: Passo del Cerreto to Northwest
We started a short hike in the Apennines at Passo del Cerreto at 1261 meters. This is the meeting of two cultures and two biomes. To the west and south is the Mediterranean culture of Tuscany with olive groves and large settled powerful cities. To the east and north in the region of Parma is a more harsh continental climate, cuisine based on butter and cheese, and small scattered small towns in the mountains.
