Alpine Chough & Rose

We celebrated Valentine's Day at 3000m altitude

with a cup of good white wine, 

a piece of cake left over from the night before

and a “Risotto” cooked on a small camping cooker.

As a clever opportunist, 

the Alpine Chough demanded its share.

This bird is capable of eating everything its beak can grab. 

We gave the mountain a rose, 

slightly withered and tired from the climb.
