Albula Pass & Chants

A hike to Es-chahütte was everything Switzerland is deemed to be.
We were close and personal with nature and cows.  Both Stephan and I had our cameras clicking as we hiked.

Chants

We then drove to Chants - a small town the population of which usually leaves in winter as the road is closed.

 

  

Here is a sampling of the hundreds of photos we took. Beautiful running water, a trough, a waterfall, more cows, 'wide' roads that Stephan adores, Swiss flags and choppers taking food and supplies to some remote hütte in the mountains.
