SCUOL SWITZERLAND – We’ve at last gotten somewhere, actually somewhere spectacular, after a long day of airplanes and trains. Scuol is the first stop on our week-long trekking adventure, organized by Ryder Walker. The concept is as follows; we hike from town to town through the mountains above the Engadine Valley, with our luggage sent ahead of us each day to our new stopping point. We’ll start tomorrow from here, which is our first of many perfect Swiss villages. I’m traveling with my Leica kit, using my Sony Nex-7 as a backup. These with my M9 and 35mm Summilux lens.

We’ve gotten lucky – there are wildflowers here in riotous profusion:
