Heavy rains yesterday prevented a hike, as planned, so it was a restful day indoors for some time reading novels, which is a good thing. When the clouds lifted, we walked down the hill to buy walnut bread and lentils for soup.
The rain was light enough to walk through so we took a two mile hike in farm lands. The landscape is unlike any I’ve walked through in Switzerland, combining deciduous forests, chiefly Sycamore, with pine, open fields, and boulders.
Back at the apartment, named Sycamore Lodge, it was more reading with naps thrown in, and later a dinner of truffle stuffed ravioli, one oven braised young onion, and chanterelles cooked in butter.
The sun is out. We will take a cable car up and hike for hours today. Awaiting us this evening is a dinner of chanterelles and pappardelle with chopped beef and chives.
