Cycling to and hiking above the beautiful Oeschinensee above Kandersteg. Photo, map, etc.

I obviously like to cycle … but often hiking is a better way to get up high and enjoy the Alps.

There is a well known “secret” among mountain lovers. During the endless, gray, depressing days this time of year – there is often plenty of sunshine if you just go high enough.

After seeing the photos of my cycle up above Lac d’Emosson last week, Doreen was eager to visit.

So we drove to the main dam with the aim of hiking up high and finding the 150 million year old dinosaur tracks.

I decided to rest my tired cycling legs today and hike up Le Saleve with Doreen.

All the great hairpins from Friday’s ride were now surrounded by snow.

Perfect deep blue sky as we hiked high above Les Arcs – stunning.
