we don't usually seek out dirt roads, but this one was pretty ridable

farms along the way

road not taken

cactus growing beside the road

still some work for a farmer in Sicily to do in late November

we ride up into the hills

Borgo Franchetto village

field plants . . . and their fruit (artichoke?)

Two shepherds and their dogs at work. One of the guys came over and talked with us, so we did our best with our fragments of Italian.
