Walk to Mandelon

I’m always trying to find new walks to post, but that’s quite difficult at this time of year with all the snow around.  Then I remembered that there’s a track on the other side of the mountains opposite us, in the Heremence spur of the Val d’Hérens, which is used for the Grand Raid mountain bike race.  I hoped, as it was facing south west and wasn’t at too high an altitude, that it would be clear of snow…  Well, it wasn’t, but that didn’t stop me walking up to the wooden buildings at Mandelon.

On the short drive back home, I stopped to take a few pictures of some typical, rustic villages.  They’re not quite the ‘chocolate box’ images that you might expect of Switzerland, but they’re beautiful nonetheless. 🙂
