Saas-Fee (1800 meters above sea level, Switzerland) is surrounded by a number of high mountains. A considerable part of those mountains is covered in ice and snow. During summer, the glaciers melt and produce a massive amount of melt water that runs through various stages before running into the Feevispa River that leaves the valley in the north. The main glacier shrinks by approximately 5-8 meters per year, possibly because of climate change. This is one from a series of field-recordings I made of the different stages the water goes through, using a Sony PCM-D50 recorder during summer 2010. This one captures a small trickle of water in the √ússere Wald on the Hannig slope. There are no large waterfalls in this area but water still runs through this forest and sometimes run into a small pool, such as this one.
