The beautiful bavona valley - sweet chestnuts hike (Pic heavy)
« on: October 25, 2017, 10:33:15 PM »
My family and I recently enjoyed a few days off in the wonderful bavona valley. (Ticino, south of switzerland)
There are whole forests with beautiful very old chestnut trees whose delicious fruits now fall to ground.
For me this valley is like a fairytale. I make it like my son, forget everything else,
just follow the path and I am amazed by all the things.
Here are some impressions of it.

Oh, and here the sweet chestnuts. Absolutely delicious!

Small world, the guy on the right in this pic is a cousin of mine :D 

Thanks for the great pics :cheers: They made me realise something about some parts of my country...

And reminded me I love chestnuts. Boiled, on the grill or the fireplace, glacés, made into jam... :drool:

Thank you guys!  :cheers:
Glad me if you like our hiking photos also.

There are some real eyecatchers in this area. But everyone can google them.
I wanted to show more the hidden beauty.

@firiki: He also seemed a little familiar to me and took a few minutes walk with us - was so funny! And he also likes chestnuts!
 :D ;) :salute:
