Picture of two hikers on a journey in Val Formazza from above
Hikers journey across a glacier near the Formazza Valley on the Swiss-Italian border. “I was walking toward the top of the 3,374-meter [11,069-foot] Blinnenhorn,” writes Your Shot member Silvia Aresca. “The path climbed steeply until the brow of the Gries Glacier, where finally in the distance I saw the peak that owes its name [blind horn] to how difficult it is to see until one is almost at the end of the walk. I stopped to get my breath back and saw these two silhouettes [moving] over the glacier.”
Aresca’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
