Therme Vals, Switzerland

I know I was MIA for the last week, and I have a very good excuse. Even though I back everything up, somehow there was a perfect storm involving my computer, my husband's, and my digital camera. For about 5 days I thought I lost all of my Austria and Switzerland digital pics. I'm only going on about this because I want you to know there is great recovery software out there--so I got it all back.  Moving on, here is one of the most beautiful places ever. Vals, at the end of a box canyon, has one of the most perfectly designed spas (and hotel) ever, called Therme Vals , designed by Peter Zumthor. We were only there one night, which was enough--because we had our fill of soaking after an evening and a morning of it and it was expensive. Still it's one of those places that is worth going to once in your life, if you happen to be in the area. Clara loved it and declared it 'better than Disneyland'. 
this is where you can sip the water from the source..not too sulphur-y

 Our room was one of the Peter Zumthor designed rooms-pretty straightforward.

 The local products they use in the spa.
 Delicious cheese cart after dinner.
An amazing tea selection at breakfast.
