Photographer's Note

Another view of the Lac de Tseuzier (1,777 m) is an artificial reservoir created by the Rawyl dam, built from 1953 to 1957.
At the far end of the lake, the trail passes the start of the Bisse de Sion, a historical irrigation channel built from 1901 to 1903 to carry water all the way to the river La Sionne – which eventually flows through the capital of Valais.
An ancient trail leads from here further still up the valley: to the Rawyl Pass (2,425 m) and the Bernese Alps beyond. This crossing was extensively used in Roman times and during the Middle Ages, but today is reserved for hikers.
