Our latest adventure, was a 50 minute walk, to “Vadret da Morteratsch”. A once majestic glacier that is rapidly melting, which was made very clear by the markers along the way, showing where the snout used to be (1880, 1900, 1920 etc.).
We started of at the restaurant Morteratsch, crossed over the railway tracks and hit the trail. The closer we got to the snout, the more our surroundings turned from luscious green to ragged rocks.
The last marker shows where the snout was in 2015…only two years ago!
We explained about the glacier melting to the kids, although the younger ones probably aren’t old enough to understand.
Their main concern was who could make the biggest splash, by throwing rocks into the icy streams.
