Ulassai (Sardinia)

After several days of long drives to see the sights we were pleased to finally have a destination closer to our Air-B-n-B house.  We decided to go to the town of Ulassai and hike along a loop trail that would give us good views and interesting sights.

The trail started in town and headed up to a small gorge where the locals had created an outdoor climbing venue for top-roping just a short distance from the town-center.  The trail then explored some lovely pine woods and eventually wound its way up to a summit with a wonderful view down into the town.  Finally, the path took us back down to where we had started.  We arrived just in time for gelato and espresso...
