Evolène in the val d'Hérens has a beautiful glacial river, La Borgne, which gurgles along here in an interesting plateau at about 1380 meters. This is a great place to do some relatively flat snowshoeing!
The cliffs give a sense of tinyness to ones esteem and the frozen waterfalls are works of art in progress!
Fantastic feats of architecture.
Did you know these century old barns are built with wood that can't burn to the ground?
Here are some of my favorite photos from my outings this winter so far. It has been an excellent start to a great season for me. We have seen wild chamois & chevreuil, as well as lots of wild hare & silly squirel tracks & I actually saw a rock ptarmigan (coq de Bruyères) fly out in the forest! The snow has been up high and fluffy. I have discovered some new spots, spent my first winter night at the Cabane Mont Fort, and managed to snowshoe in places I had never been before! It amazes me how big the Verbier playground is, after 15 years of living here I still can stumble upon new treasures! It is snowing at the moment and I am looking forward to playing in it this afternoon!
