The Verzasca Valley is an area of pure, clear water and strangely patterned gneiss boulders and is, without a doubt, one of the loveliest places in the whole of Switzerland. For this reason, I try and get here at least once a year.

The two boulders on either side of the river appeared to be 'guarding' the river beyond, hence the title.
