A group of hikers descends a hidden valley in the Swiss Alps. Cowbells tinkle. A goat bleats in the distance. The smell of damp earth and raked hay permeates. A voice rings out from the hillside.”Buon Giorno!” A lone glacier eats away at the earth’s crust. The mountains begin their journey to the sea. Time passes slowly. The hikers continue to descend. Tonight they’ll rest in the tiny village of Soglio
, a Roman village filled with tiny alleyways and cobblestone roads.
