The first delicate flowers of spring herald the end of the harsh winter while the sun shines longer every day, pushing the snow back.
Lush meadows begin to bloom and the curious marmots wake from their hibernation. Spring is finally coming to the mountains, making it a perfect time for a hike.
Carefully plan your route, watching out for the marmot burrows. Pack a picnic as your chance to earn an edelweiss hiking pin is rather slim if you end up hungry and sitting on a rock among the remaining snow. â€¦
