Quille du Diable

View On Black


This is the view from the mountain restaurant Refuge l’espace 2860m, Switzerland


Here in the mountains they say that the devil roams free on the glacier plateau of Les Diablerets. This is because on stormy days the devils slip out of their holes and throw stones at the forty metre high rock tower, which for the most part they miss. No wonder that the people on Alp Derborence, 1500 metres below, are so scared of landslides.
