Rooftop View

We were lucky enough to get to go on the roof of Hotel Kistenpass. It is an amazing view from up there!

We hiked up to this little church and chapel later in the day.

One of the ski runs and chairlifts. Not much snow left!

A dusting of snow

One Easter morning in Brigels, we woke up to a cloudy day and a dusting of snow on the ground. Beautiful!

Spring in France and Switzerland means fields of yellow from all the Rapeseed. This may be better known to some as Canola.

We photographers love it!

Dining ala Rocco

Our fine dining experience at the Hotel Kistenpass was made even more enjoyable the times we were allowed to sit in the kitchen and watch the cook (Rocco Rappe) do his thing. He is fun to watch and his meals are excellent!

It was a mighty slushy day!

Hotel Kistenpass

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this great little hotel. The food was amazing. The view from our room was spectacular. Even when the weather was bad, we liked just hanging out in the cafe/bar drinking and playing games with our friends. This is the owner's dog (yup, she has a regular household pets as well as the little horses!).

Our friend was knitting the entire time. She even made us hats on this trip!

The Easter bunnies made friends.
