Natural History Photographs


First full day in Theth. We tried to get to some alpine meadows, but this turned out to be far from easy. We followed a track used by many long-distance hikers, and every now and then a small group of horses carrying luggage of these hikers were guided along the track. Most of the day we found ourselves surrounded by forests, although we did manage to find a few larger clearings. Still not quite in the right mind-set for just enjoying what the area had to offer, I didn't make photos of the landscape.
