Hike to Steingletscher

The Steingletscher glacial valley, not far from the summit of the Susten Pass, is one of my favourite places in Switzerland. Huge mountains, an uncommon amount of wildlife in a country where hunting is a treasured past-time, several glaciers and the thrill of the winding mountain road to get there. It’s long been a goal to park at the alpine centre and walk the six kilometre round-trip to the main glacier which gives the area its name. Jo and I did just that this past weekend, with friends.
