Sunday photo: Slow and steady

Snow has arrived and all over Switzerland people are finding their winter hiking boots, ski poles, snowshoes, warm jackets, and getting ready for glorious winter hikes.

I took this photo on a sunny day at Jaunpass. This was late winter and my snowshoes actually stayed on the backpack through the whole hike. For that reason I was able to overtake the snowshoeing-hiker rather quickly. Not that this was a goal in itself. After all, slow and steady is the prime directive of winter hikes.
