May 28: hike down from Vnà

Then it was time to take my leave of Vnà and head back down to Ramosch.

In order to see some new sights on the way down, I went on the more direct hiking trail rather than back down the road.

The cows were mildly interested.

Don't worry ladies, just passing by.

7081

The view of the village thinning back out again.

Crest cows.

Looking down to the road and perhaps to the En itself way beyond.

A last glimpse of Vnà.

Hmm, it appears that Andy Goldsworthy came through just before me.

The trail including some precarious electric-fence crossings.

The slope was at least 30° at this point and feeling rather cliffy.

At this point I decided to sidewind down to the road just to that yellow trail sign, so as not to have to thread between the cow jumble at left and the cow array at right.

The silent judgment of the cow array.

Most of the cow jumble looked more sleepy than judgy.

Now there's a pose!

Then I got back onto the trail and it looked like it would be easier just to roll down to Ramosch, now back in view, than to try to walk.

The cemetery at the western edge of town, a lot more formally laid out than most Engadin public spaces.

7122

Still kind of a long way down.

7123

A fairly comprehensive view of Ramosch and the Florinuskirche, now almost in reach.

Back up the trail, looking erosively steep.
