08: 20 short of 3000

Two cable cars, a sausage with sauce and a platter of bread and mixed condiments later, I found myself looking up at a loose pile of rocks a few hundred metres away. The Facebook check-in told me I'd travelled to just under 3000 metres, 2980 to be exact, so I actually had no choice. I stood up from the wooden bench at the three-table slow food festival and made my way to above 3000 metres, and this truly remarkable view.
