Snow, snow, snow on Monte Autore I/Lz-301

Yesterday I took advantage of a beautiful sunny day, after two days of rain and together with a couple of friends I went to the Monti Simbruini Park, about 2 hours by car from Rome. Here we walked in the snow to reach the top of Monte Autore I/LZ-301 , a beautiful mountain of 1855 meters with a very panoramic view and with a summit that allows for very comfortable activations.

To reach the top we walked about an hour in a beautiful landscape of snow filled trees and breathtaking views. At the top I found tons of people who naturally started making jokes about my fishing rod and asking me what kind of strange activity I was doing. There were really a lot of people and in fact I preferred to activate faster than usual, two people had crashed into my longwire. Overall 24 qsos with two S2S with @SQ9MDF and @SQ9BQW on 20 and 30 meters Ssb and cw.

On the way back we took a longer ride going down a ridge and beautiful woodland. A splendid day in the mountains, perhaps too many people at the top but by now I have noticed that after Covid the number of people in the mountains has increased a lot, but this is good news after all.


What a beautiful day!
