Day 3: Zinal over Col de Sorebois

A sunny morning in Zinal starts us climbing through forest.  Above treeline, the slope is covered with ski lifts and pistes.  The Col de Sorebois is 2,900 meters, with alpine cows grazing in the meadows above the Lake of Moiry.

The slopes are covered with ski lifts and snow blowers.
Below, just below the pass.

 At the col (or pass) below, 2,900 meters, the Lake de Moiry is visible: destination.

The cows above are a special breed from the Val d'Herens.

To the left, the Black Vanilla Orchid,
Nigritella nigra.
