With a bit of light, colors are everywhere, even in my much loved blue-white dominated high alpine mountain world. The melting waters of Glacier de Moiry, located at the beginning of Val d’Anniviers in Valais, are of a distinguished green-turquoise color and carry a lot of sediments. I like the feeling of walking on that alluvial surface made by the waters as you can sink veeery slowly into it. It’s not dangerous, just fun.
Further down, the waters add to Lac de Moiry, a mid-size reservoir lake. If you decide to go there (by car, it’s possible!), choose autumn. In that season, the water-level reaches it’s maximum and you see only milky green-turquoise. Send me a photo if you have been there!
