Two steps in the middle of nature in search of that infantile sweetness that you feel listening to the sound of your steps on the creaking leaves.
In this period of the season, with an explosion of colors, the woods and paths become real works of art that give a unique and evocative representation.
Long carpets of leaves that after having lit red, passing through various shades of orange, light yellow and then finish in shades of ocher.
BUT WHY DO THE LEAVES FALL IN AUTUMN AFTER LOSING THEIR GREEN COLOUR?
A natural phenomenon is the foliage. Some species of trees that are not able to stand the winter cold, suspend the production of chlorophyll and so the leaves lose their coloring in favor of those typical autumn colors similar to the color of wine that have always marked this season.
THE RESERVE OF LAMA BIANCA, BETWEEN BEECH TREES AND CLEAR WATERS
The beech more than any other tree is subject to these mutations and on the Majella the centuries-old beech of Lama Bianca is one of the places where nature is most generous in every season and especially in autumn.
The Lama Bianca Nature Reserve is characterized by dense forests and water springs, The Tour of the Sources with its paths make it a suitable place for children and blind people but also a starting point for more experienced hikers.
THE FIVE SENSES OF THE LAMA BIANCA AUTUMN
An autumn walk on the paths of Lama Bianca is an experience to be lived in full with all the sensations and suggestions that leaves through our five senses, always present travel companions. A walk of dispersion and reappropriation of oneself.
The beech wood offers scenarios that satisfy the view. A 'gothic cathedral made of wood and leaves' that amazes and amazes under the reassuring gaze of Mother Mountain.
With our hands we touch the imposing roots of the beech trees and establish a contact that goes beyond time, but with our hands we can also touch the icy waters of the springs and suffer the hard impact.
Listening to the forest is one of the strongest sensory experiences, the sounds of foliage with the creaking of leaves under the boots is a happy reference to the games and sensations of childhood.
SENSE OF SMELL
The smell and the strong scent of the autumn undergrowth made of moistened leaves and mosses is something that enters you and absolutely is the most persistent sensory experience that will remind us of the place.
Well, for what is the sense that makes you know a place, you have to go a short way and we reach the village of Sant'Eufemia in Maiella to enjoy the excellent dairy products of one of the dairies in the area.
The foliage show is among the most beautiful experiences to do this season in Abruzzo. To spend a few days in this magical place we recommend WHERE TO STAY we gladly host travelers, tourists and seekers of cozy experiences giving them tips and directions.
