a Swiss holiday part 2: the valleys and being a tourist

SDC11196 The church tower in Evolene (definitely a tourist photo!)

SDC11208 The Aiguille de la Tsa (or Tza) – a peak I really want to go back and climb, it is also known as the Matterhorn of Arolla valley due to it’s unmistakeable shape

SDC11290 The Grande Dixence Dam, tallest gravity dam in the world at a mind boggling 285m high – well worth a click on the link to see some info about it, this dam is one of the start points for the approach to the Dix hut

SDC11314 Phil on the walk up to Lac Bleu

SDC11365 The Pyramids of Euseigne, bizarre features naturally sculpted out of moraine left behind by a retreating glacier – you actually drive through these on the drive up the valley to Evolene and Arolla. Very very weird.
