Fantastic fall hiking in Verbier

I just cannot get enough of this weather! Absolutely beautiful day to hike up to the top of Pierre Avoi and straight back down to Verbier. The view is so amazing from up there. Just super duper!

Sweet Saint Christophe and its view down into the valleys as well as up into the snowy peaks surrounding us!
Drop off views are not for the faint of heart! Visited the Ch√Ęteau de Verbier's ruins.
Blue skies baby!!

End of summer

Walking anywhere in the Alpes is a pleasure at the moment with the record high temperatures for November. The colors are fresh and vibrant! The air is delishious and the sun sets too early!!

I even took off my shoes and walked in the dry crispy crunchy leaves. What a glorious feeling. The wet mud was cold and kept me awake!
What's up buttercup?! Time to hibernate under the leaves till the ground warms up again. The survival techniques of plants is a fascinating dimension, I cant get enough of it!
Sunset on the Massif des Combins. Pink and pretty these evenings.
Meanwhile at the bottom of the valley the sun stopped shining around 3pm. The villages and histories of these ancient hamlets of the valley of Bagnes are so interesting to visit, and beautiful on these warm afternoons.
