Susan on the Soleil on the Chemin des Planetes

The next day we decide to hike the 16 km hike from St. Luc to Zinal and return to St. Luc by bus. It’s an interesting route, with good views of the Valaisian Alps above Zinal. Just above the funicular station is the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud astronomical observatory. And a 6-kilometer walk as far as Hotel Weisshorn is also called “Chemin des Planetes” (Planetary Walk), with handsome sculptures representing the sun and planets, laid out in proportional distance from each other.
