Hiking in the Swiss Alps Gimmelwald 2017/06/27
I was lucky enough to find myself in Switzerland for a three month
stay in a wonderful little village called Gimmelwald. I enjoyed plenty
of hiking in the Swiss Alps.
The wild strawberries are beginning to ripen and taste like I imagine
all strawberries once tasted, a flavour of untamed depth. Switzerland
really has some great nature and landscapes. Hiking in the Swiss
Alps is the perfect way to explore your surroundings.
Familiar friends such as Birch and
Elder lower down in the valley appear to me. There is Willow too and
many Coniferous trees weeping sap. I have started collecting to
eventually make some natural glue.
Hiking in the Swiss Alps
High in the mountains the weather is very changeable and noticing the
temperature subtly drop I found shelter and as the rain drops fell I was
beneath a wood roof looking out at the splashes.
