Chamonix valley

The forest was lush & green today, just perfect for hidding from the shopping crowds and the heat. At the end of the day the Mont Blanc was still there majestically overlooking us all.

Yurt at La Dôle

We saw wild chamois, eidelweisses, the lac léman (lake geneva) and clouds. When we got to the yurt it was half blown over by the wind-gods so we opted for a romp in the hay!
Am still finding hay at the bottom of my back-pack...

Zermatt Matterhorn

4 unbeleivable days hiking around impressive views of the Matterhorn.
It really made me want to eat a Toblerone bar!!!

Hiking around Verbier

Up near the cabane brunet is a hidden secret lac that is perfect for pic-nics!
If that sounds good to you get the pic nic ready and let's go!

The Lauenensee is a beautiful lake just waiting for you to take the time to come and discover it. Nestled away in the pasturelands above Gstaad it is a real Heidi postcard!

Rochers de Naye

Just above Montreux is a spot worth visiting. The train can take you up or back down to see the impressive views down onto the lac léman (lake geneva) if you don't feel up to hiking up. But the flowers are worth the hike, and the alpine salamanders we saw all over make the trip increadible!
