La Fouly

La Fouly has so many hikes to do it is always difficult to choose which one to do! This was an unforgetable occasion with martagon lilies all over the place. Looking at the mountain views and the flowers and the bugs...ayyyie, what a hard life!

Bisse du Trient

This easy walk brings you to the mouth of the Trient Glacier. An amazing spot where you can really see how the ice formed the valley and get a feel for how far the glacier has receeded. Beatiful and sad. Let's hope it doesn't all disapear too fast...

At the end of the Bagnes valley is the spectacular Mauvoisin dam. The alpine water it holds looks as though someone emptied powdered milk into it!
What a day for Australians who have been living through a drought for the past few years. I just wish they could take some of it home with them.

Pointe de l'Arpille

It looks steep but it really isn't. The Rhone valley below us is so flat with its yummy ripe apricot trees (late this season with the cold spell we had in May). From the top the view spans from the Combins to the Mont Blanc region.

A beautiful hike around the hills of Verbier. For those who aren't affraid of heights the top of the Pierre Avoi is not to be missed. The views will make you feel teeeeny-weeeny!

Mountain Biking

Well we followed the path of the Grand Raid, from Verbier to Grimmentz...
I just don't know how Myriam Saugy does it in under 8 hours.
It took us THREE DAYS!!!

Champex Lac

Hiking from Champex Lac is such a pleasure with the lake to start and end from. But it doesn't take much to get into alpine terrain!
