This hike was a rather spontaneous idea. I had seen the trailhead on my morning walk but chose to continue elsewhere at the time, and it was only after realizing I could not waste my time here napping that the idea of going there struck me. When you are in the alps trails mean business, and when you are promised an adventure trail, you can bet that it is exactly that. The hike lead steadily uphill underneath the scorching warmth of the sun, the mountain breeze merciful as we climbed. I admit that this was perhaps not the easiest to navigate with two dogs because of the bridges, and I ended up scooping one dog under each arm and carrying them across. This may be an easy task with a 4-5 kilo dog, but a 14 kilo one is a bit more difficult. When you have to carry both across it becomes quite the challenge, but one I managed to overcome. As I was huffin and puffin up the hill I encountered alpine ibex, one of which confidently walked along and showed us the way. The water was roaring around us, marmots watching us from heated rock, wildflowers growing where the eye would not think to look. Surrounded by tall peaks covered in snow, the heat balanced by the cool the mountains bring. It is positively wild, this place, and I think I`m in love.
