For the fourth time in the past three years, I’ve returned to Val Roseg. One would think I’ve had enough of it, but I haven’t. I love it for the fact that it’s only accessible on foot or by taking the “horse taxi”, i.e. a cart pulled by horses and that it always looks different. This year the larches were absolutely perfect which is not a given. We hiked in from the west, over the Fuorcla Surlej, and spent the night in Val Roseg before hiking out the next morning. We were a bit disappointed we had only booked one night, but vowed to return next year and stay for two. The photos are beautiful and still they don’t do it justice. The golden light everything is bathed in is so hard to capture.
As we fell asleep, we heard a bellowing stag and the next morning there was a thin layer of hoarfrost which crunched underfoot as we walked out on the valley floor before breakfast.
