Walk to the Pièce Glacier

As I hope you all know by now, I’m always looking to find somewhere new to show you.  So today I have a treat… In that this is the first time I’ve ever done this walk, which heads up from Arolla towards the Vignette Hut.  However, ordinaray walkers, (i.e. without crampons and a Mountain guide) need to stop at the Pièce Glacier.  It’s a bit of a climb, but well worth it for the great views of the Arolla valley and the surrounding mountains. 🙂

    • I’m glad you liked it. I often wonder whether it’s worth putting some of those early walk images in the gallery. But I think it shows what you have to go through to get to the higher paths and it provides a nice introduction to the walk. It’s sort of the same for the descent, with the bridge and steam. 🙂
