Route Les Bois

"Together with my girlfriend, who is more of a nature than a sports lover, we went to Les Bois. To play a round of golf? Hardly, since it was in the middle of winter... we were going to do some snowshoe hiking and took off in the direction of Le Boéchet. Fortunately, the route was marked, because we could have easily gotten lost in all those places with funny names, especially me, coming from Soleure. After four hours we made haste to return to Les Bois because some heavy snowfall had set in."
