Borgne Riverside Stroll in Winter (Walk 2), Val d’Hérens, Switzerland

After another morning of light snow yesterday, today was bright and sunny. So I set off to do a variation on my Walk 2, by taking the alternative, higher path on the far side of the river, all the way from Evolène to Les Haudères. The lower track is pisted for the cross country skiers, so signs are in place to direct you away from walking along there.

As you will see from the pictures below, I wasn’t the first person to walk along that route. And indeed, there seemed to be quite a few people out and about today, getting their daily exercise.

Also have a look for the Dipper (in pic 5). It’s standing on a stone to the left of the ‘steamy’ river – directly above the second f in the …outoffocus watermark. And I hope I’m not the only one to think that picture 22 looks like a stag. 🤔

  1. Fabulous as always, Mike! I just love looking through your hike photos, what catches your eye to share with us. The ‘stag’ I saw immediately (cool!) and Karen’s comment above mentions another deer leaping, I see that now too, good eye! 🙂 (Deer seem to be all around you, night and day! hehe) So many beautiful scenes and that frozen waterfall is gorgeous, I am impressed with those huge evergreens, just stunning!
