We had a nice, long fall this year and used it to soak up as many views and (since the animals had all come down from their summer alpine grazing spas) domesticated livestock as we could.
A favorite hike of ours is near the Vallée de Joux and is a short, 45 minute trek up to some spectacular views.
Hobbit hole or doomsday bunker? You decide.
This is the same lake that we walked on, frozen, what seems like five minutes ago but was actually almost two years ago. (WHAT?).
Gliders were out in full force.
The hike may have been short but I still find rewards very motivating.
Cows, scenery and chocolate. All in all, a great way to spend Saturday afternoon.
