Before Winter Comes

October leaves bleed; weeping farewell, the passing rays of summer sun.

The mountain passes in Switzerland will soon be closed and hotels and restaurants that cater to hikers, in places like Binn, will give their staff an extended leave.

Binn, Valais

Avid walkers used the favourable weather presented to them at the end of October to make the most of the last days of the summer schedule to reach some of Switzerland’s hidden gems.

Those who didn’t fancy the drop in temperature at altitude chose to wander along the signposted paths around Switzerland’s scenic lakes.

But then they wouldn’t have seen the mountain goats still chewing on blades of grass; thinking, “It won’t be long now before the skiers arrive.”
