I think it’s fair to say that a lot of my walks are determined by the weather. Forecasts in central Europe are generally quite accurate, so whenever the Swiss méteo says e.g. Monday will be sunny, it usually is. This was the case for last Monday and, having not been up the Arolla valley for a while, I decided to do a circular walk up to the Cabane de la Tsa (@2,611m or 8,566ft) from the tiny hamlet of La Monta.
Again the route was on a south facing slope, so there was very little snow to negotiate as I approached the hut and social distancing wasn’t an issue either as I didn’t see a soul all the way around.
On the way to and from La Monta, the views were so nice and clear that I stopped the car to take a few photographs and they are numbered 1-3 and 35 & 36 in the gallery. I hope you enjoy the walk!
