Autumn in the Alps is just as stunning as Summer or Winter.  Although this year we have had rather a lot of rain and as you can see from the next picture the river in Morzine was quite wild this week.

The weather does remain warm during the days allowing plenty of hiking and the scenery is stunning.   The leaves on the trees change colour rapidly at this time of year creating beautiful bright scenery.
