"They're squares." Dan says. "Way over there, those are yaks not cows. You can tell because they're more square." Sure enough we run into a herd of Tibetan yaks grazing along the Swiss slopes. Between the trail company and the tattered prayer flags, it seems we've run much further than planned. 

It's not exactly close, but when you're in Ticino, also run the Monte Zucchero for a big vert day.

Trading Lago Ritom behind for grassy trails and a backcountry feeling.

Another run to save for the magic of fall weather and colors.

That's not your typical Swiss cow. A touch of Nepal along the Ticinese trails.

  1. WARNING : 9th July 2018: the trail marked white and blu from lago di Dendro and Laghetti della Miniera is in very bad conditions; it could be dangerous. Better use the classic path via Passo dell’Uomo; longer but safer.
