"Thinking is not an automatic function... Man is free to think or evade that effort. Thinking requires a state of full focused awareness. The act of focusing one's conciousness is volitional. Man can focus his mind to a full, active, purposefully directed awareness of reality - or he can unfocus it and let himself drift in a semiconscious daze, merely reacting to any chance stimulus of the immediate moment, at the mercy of his undirected sensory-perceptual mechanism of any random, associational connections it might happen to make."

9: The upper lake of the three Lacs du Ruburent
10: Approaching the summit, there is a tunnel with 1.7m height which was constructed with concrete in World War (I or II?). The climbers still use this passage as shortcut to go from the east to the north-east where the trail is less steep. It is totally dark inside because the tunnel has two bendings.
11: A fort in the middle-right-bottom
12: The view to the nord with the Mont Viso summit
13: The two lower lakes of Ruburent
14: The view east to the Maira valley with the top-station of an old transport lift
16: We follow the ridge south-east to climb down to the two lower lakes of Ruburent
17: Those that can't get up in the morning have to climb back to Col de Ruburent at the end of the day when the sun throws long shadows improving the relief of the mountains.
18: Tête de Moïse (3104m) ridge
