From alpha to omega: where does the water flow ?

Here comes the belvedere in front of the hotel we left in part I

Frozen out of the Rhone glacier you will flow,

below the sheet of ice you will carve your way,

through tunnels of blue light you will run away,

      Thanks Mike! It was indeed. In one of the pictures you can see a man in the middle of the glacier, half of the glacier still in shadow. I had to wait in that shadow for almost one hour before the sun finally flooded the whole valley. Climbing up was too slippery with normal shoes. In the wind, on the dark side of the glacier, it was very, very cold. In that hour I really understood how plants have to wait for the first ray of sun 😀

        Wow! That is a great story. I imagine you will remember it forever.

        For sure! And what I will also remember is that when the sun shines high on a glacier, walking back on water and ice is even more difficult … without proper shoes.
