Dispatches from way, way behind the lines in Switzerland

You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

The forest above La Foirausaz

17 November 2013

We commence our promenade as far up the Route des Montagnes as our VW tank is likely to get us, on the Foirausaz pasture near the cistern (1337m) that used to be called L'Éparçillon on the maps but isn't anymore.

Joe and Kristin are coming over to check out some scientific monitoring gear that's been set up on the pasture.

And now off we go on our walk.

A beautiful sunny afternoon for a change

Down into a little combe at the foot of the forest the 'Bois de la Sauge'

The farm of La Foirausaz

Wait up!

An intricate samba step

We're leaving the pastures soon . . .

. . . and launching up into the forest for a while.


Bottomless pit

We'll go around it.

Brambly forest

Out onto a trail, above the Pré de St-Livres

Kristin and Joe persevere westward up the hill.

And persevere in persevering

And still persev~ . . .

We're topping out onto the ridge at about 1440m.

Wait up!
