The sky is also worth including
Starting from the river bed level
The sun is gone, and so is our hike.
Light and shadow, sunset version
And we have almost finished our descent.
Not much left to go, but the shadows have started returning
Similar to a previous picture, but now with the sun included, which changes the tone significantly
And passing through the interesting formation once more
Back on the path down
The view was worth the hike
Looking back to where we started
We still have a way to go!
Even more sand; how many millions of years did this take?
Very interesting rock formations; sand upon sand upon sand
Light conquering the shadow
Wait, the sun climbs faster!
Light and shadow, sunrise version
Starting a new day, climbing higher this time
Sun has set, time to head back
Small river, large canyon
Vertical walls, made of basically sand
Big rocks and small rocks
Mirror mirror on the ground…
A tiny, almost-invisible waterfall
First look: not bad!
Watching the horizon
Skiing in the shade
Empty and quite darker than the "in-the-sun" part. Almost time to call it a day!
The sun starts setting down...
And that makes the slopes even emptier! Also, a plane.
The view right *before* the start of this slope (19, right side) makes it look like a cliff, even though it's just steep.
A short break
... at almost 3'000m high, before starting down on piste 17 (Schlattain).
Yet one more slope, on a different side of the mountain.
Yet another peak
And no off-pite tracks - unexpected!
In some areas, the wind-carved snow looks somewhat "alien" (for a city-dweller, that is). Also, animal tracks, I wonder what it was...
Being on the chairlift gives a quite different perspective for taking photos. Quite happy with how this turned out!
Well-used off-piste exit
If so many people exit here, is it still "off-piste"?
