Our Autumn Colours have yet to arrive here in the UK, but just now my mind has skipped Autumn and I’m already looking forward to Winter. Winter means Skiing and the ski trip is now booked.
We’re headed back to Zermatt. Again. Beginning to lose count of the number of times we’ve been there in Winter and Summer but this is either visit twenty or maybe twenty-one.
There’s something comfortable about the familiar: the journey is straightforward (accepting flight delays), the hotel cannot be faulted (Parkhotel Beau Site), the scenery is superb, and the skiing extensive and varied, and the snow is guaranteed. What more could you want from a holiday destination?
It’s a while since I posted anything remotely related to the great outdoors. I’ve been mining a rich vein of other images that have come my way in recent weeks, but today, for all those who essentially followed my blog for the landscapes from high places, here is one from last winter.
The image above is of the mighty Monte Rosa that straddles the Swiss-Italian border and is one of the many peaks that encircle the Zermatt valley. Wreathed in cloud it becomes mysterious, but the summits just peek above the clouds.
