Day of the Pine Processionary Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2012
Climbed Punta della Capella from Col de Verde. Lots of clouds on the summit and the remaining impression I will keep from this hike is that I walke short-pantedly through bushes with Pine Processionaries. Later opened the car window to find that the caterpillars had paraded across the window frame and I developped bois and rashes which kept bugging me for the next three weeks.
