  • Overrun with Alps.

  • How exactly is something overrun with alps? Also, I discovered that alpestrine is a word.

  • It seemed a more interesting definition than "alpine", from OED2.

  • The definition I find isn't "alpine" but "mountainous", which has a different flavor to it. Then again, I wasn't using the OED but instead a list of "aeiou" words for Perl programmers.
