This is the last refuge, a few steps before the summit of the mountain 'Monte Rotondo', 2,824 meters high (Corsica, France). The landscape is very dry, and yet some wild goats wander around as you are nearing the summit.

This must be a real comfort to find in such a desolate landscape. Is it open to anyone who climbs as a resting stage?

Yes, it is very windy and cold (even in August when i was there). The rocks on the rooftop prevent it to be blown away by the fierce wind. I guess there were more rocks on it, but they must have slid (i hope they havn't been 'blown'...).
We can't really talk about 'real comfort' in this refuge : the door almost fell down when i took a glance inside ; it is not larger than 8 m² ; and it is absolutely empty. The only source of warmth would be the herd ! But i didn't wait enough to experiment that... The landscape was a sufficient reward !

Did you climb to this point Elie? This is quite a photo. If these are common, I've never seen them. Thank you for sharing this. It's one I will share with family. Quite unique.

That is a fascenating refuge. Never seen one quite like it. Very primitive and interesting. Bravo, great shot.
