Zinalrothorn, Obergabelhorn, Dent Blanche

It was last Sunday morning 9:30 am, we were at the bus station in Sion, the bus to the Lac des Dix was leaving in 15 minutes and we finally had our route for a six day trek through the Swiss Valais. The trek was a little bit impromptu, but it was a good one.

Berchtesgadener Alps

This summer has been so busy I haven’t had time to write a proper post about my hiking trip to the Berchtesgadener Alps at the beginning of June yet. And, to be perfectly honest, I simply got distracted. I’ve found some time to catch up just in time before my next trip to the mountains.

Rifugio Coldai on the Alta Via 1 early in the morning

a decaying horse carriage

Surprisingly enough this seriously frayed horse carriage was lying in the middle of a Swiss village. I came across it during my trek through the Valais. You can find more fray on the Daily Post. Related posts: Weekly Photo Challenges First impressions from an impromptu trek in the Swiss Valais

Sunset in the Berchtesgadener Alps

I captured several silhouettes of the Berchtesgadener Alps while I was photographing the sunset at the Stöhrhaus in June. This one though is my favourite. You will find more silhouettes on the Daily Post.
