It is that sublime hour when beings and things gain in clarity, before plunging gently into darkness. From the road that will soon twist up the Marchairuz, we see bovine silhouettes stand out against the sky as on a model. The pass, its restaurant, its bikers who return to the plain before dark. Then, an alpine road, then a few hundred meters on foot and here we are in lupine territory.
It could be the place of your next Sunday walk, a land both soft and stony with, in the distance, the tintinnabuli of cows. In this welcoming valley, a pack is regularly observed by automatic cameras – including those bearing the mark of the General Directorate of the Environment (DGE) – and by a few lucky few in camouflage uniforms who have made the wolf a quest.
