The Gardetta Plateau.
The Gardetta Plateau is situated at the intersection of three valleys, is a vast landscape featuring a host of geological-naturalistic phenomena.
The rocks in this area tell of the ancient presence of volcanoes, rivers, beaches, lagoons, coasts and seas. The recent discovery of a dinosaur footprint has increased even further the geological importance of this site positioned at the foot of Rocca la Meja. The plateau is accessible in late Spring and summer, preferably from the Comune of Canosio in the Maira Valley and is ideal for walking . From here, you can set off on a range of hikes of varying levels, on foot or by mtb and on the numerous climbing trails on Rocca la Meja.
Dragonfly close up
Dragonfly close up image. A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, infraorder Anisoptera (from Greek ἄνισος anisos, “unequal” and πτερόν pteron, “wing”, because the hindwing is broader than the forewing). Adult dragonflies are characterized by large, multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong, transparent wings, sometimes with coloured patches, and an elongated body. Dragonflies can be mistaken for the related group, damselflies (Zygoptera), which are similar in structure, though usually lighter in build; however, the wings of most dragonflies are held flat and away from the body, while damselflies hold their wings folded at rest, along or above the abdomen. Dragonflies are agile fliers, while damselflies have a weaker, fluttery flight. Many dragonflies have brilliant iridescent or metallic colours produced by structural colouration, making them conspicuous in flight. An adult dragonfly’s compound eyes have nearly 24,000 ommatidia each. (Wikipedia)
