Valley of Schwyz

I use the Swiss train system to commute between home and work. And because both home and office are in less then five-minute walking distance for a train station. Today, I managed to get home earlier than usual. The sun was shining low when I arrived at my final home town train station. That light in combination with the clouds created a beautiful natural scenery, with the last sun rays of the day illuminating the Valley of Schwyz:

Four pictures made with my phone camera, about 15 meters away from the rail tracks of my home train station. The train tracks are just behind me, with my view to the South-East into the Valley of Schwyz. On the left the two (well: three) peaks of the Mythen mountain, with the Lake Lauerz to the South.

    • It is one hour one way. It would be about 40 minutes by car (depends on traffic). But it is very convenient to work/read/email/etc in the train, so I can use that time efficiently. But not today: because my works schedule is very tight with meetings, I will use my motor bike to get to work. Will be fun πŸ™‚


      • Motorbiking though the Alps… tough commute, huh? πŸ˜‰

        How about posting a photo of you on your motor bike and a couple of good views on your way to work or home? Then we can daydream about having such a wonderful commute ourselves. πŸ™‚

        Just a thought.


  1. Erich,
    Another thought: I would love to have exactly the same photo, but in the middle of the Winter !

    Best Regards,
