Road to the Rieti Valley


Sometimes the road you're traveling is just as beautiful as the destination ...
We have to remember to enjoy the ride.

My mom and were obsessed with these trees and have no idea what they are. Finally, we told Mauro to pull over so we could take pictures. The trunks looked like manzanita and there are pinkish purple leaves that grow under the green leaves close to the branches. Beautiful right? Any ideas what they are?











Look lovingly on the present,
for it holds the only things
that are forever true.
