Mountain Bivouacs (1)

We come across mountain bivouacs, or pass nearby them, quite frequently. They are the only places we haven't stayed in.

We prefer our tent.

They could be useful in an emergency, though and they are well used.

This is Bivacco Lanti (they are often named after or in memory of someone).

Bivouacs can be old shepherds' huts or custom built metal boxes.

This one is both.

The shepherds' hut, converted in 1980, sleeps two people, plus two on the stone floor in an emergency.

The green metal box, approx 6 feet by 9 feet, sleeps nine people!
