    • The colour of the water changes with the seasons. Sometimes it is bright green. It depends on the light, snow melt and the amount of rain we have had. It is a stunning valley.

  12. I don’t know how you can bear to leave! For me, also knowing your home town in Australia, there is no comparison….. Is it my imagination, or are you spending less time in BdL these days?
