Trae and I decided to go to Assisi. We've both been before, separately, but we had such rich memories that we wanted to return. And I'm glad we did because what we saw was incredible.
There was fog everywhere. Church steeples were obscured from he ground, piazzas disappeared into a blank beyond, and people materialized from the haze only yards away.
Assisi sits on the top of a hill that juts out of the side of a mountain. Gazing out into the valley was like looking out from Noah's arc onto the ocean, like we were the only people in the world:
At certain times of day, the fog rose and receded, so Trae and I kept climbing to the city's highest hill to see if we could see anything yet:
After a couple days in Assisi, we drove to Perugia, the region's capital city, just a few miles away in the same valley.
Perugia turned out to be foggy, too, but we managed to see the sun (and part of the valley below) on our last day:
It was a wild experience, and while we might have missed out on some of the sweeping views Assisi and Perugia are known for, the fog also made for a beautiful time there.
