Brief Directions

A Central Apennines chamois spots me as I exit the Cavuto Pass on the Camosciara mountain range in Abruzzo, Italy. The antelope watches me to see what I will do. After a few minutes, it determines I am not a threat and returns to feeding on the alpine meadow.

Notes

Cavuto Pass is at 6400 feet above sea level and it the home area of about 600 chamois. Because of isolation, this chamois has become a unique subspecies and is considered by most as the most beautiful of the antelope family.
