It isn’t long before our next walking tour to the Dolomites. At the moment we are trying to find time to put together our calendar of walking holidays for 2014. The problem is we keep getting distracted by all our wonderful photographs taken in Chamonix. We have chosen our photo of the month to be this majestic Ibex.
Our guest, Brian Moat photographed the Ibex by the path leading from the alpine Berard Hut, on our way back to Le Buet in the French Alps.
We were surprised to see him so low down the mountain. Ibex normally inhabit the higher mountains. Finding one this low may have been due to the amount of snow still at higher altitudes.
