High up at 2400m in the Commune of Finhaut is a mysterious spot. You find yourself surrounded by mountain tops which are the Swiss-French border, and the enormous Emosson dam is catching all the runoff and meltwater at the other end. A fascinating place!

A wikked hot wild day was had by the cows, the views and us picking our couscous and pesto lunch from the wild unkempt ski fields of La Tzoumaz.
Thanks to La Maison de la Forêt for letting us invade your kitchen!

Spending time in places like this with more flowers than your eyes can focus on or brain can comprehend should take care of any nature deficit disorder anyone is feeling!
I hope you can get out and feel the air in a place like this soon!

Here the eidelweiss is doing some crazy thing just this morning after having been snowed on for the last 2 days up by the Cabane de Chanrion.
