"ripa" (engl. grouse).
A bird wearing feathers the color of snow, one with the pale white sheets of earth and cloudy sky.
During my visit in Lapland I met Johan, host of the Saltoluokta Mountain Station, and had the honor to join him for a hunt. Out in the mountains, on skis, observing his humble ways of interacting with nature and listening to his take on hunting, fishing, collecting berries, obtaining your own food - or in short - knowing how to survive up there.
