The Klöntalersee is a lake in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland. The lake has a size of about 3.3 km² and has been created by a prehistoric rock slide after the last ice age. From 1908 on it is used as a reservoir for electricity production. The picture below is from the Schwammhöhe looking down to the lake.

  1. I live in Oregon which has some of the most beautiful scenery in the U.S. Here is a photo of Walowa Lake near Chief Joseph and Hell’s Canyon, also formed by a melting glacier.


    What’s interesting is that the village towards the Walowa mountains is entirely done in Swiss architecture. In fact, the Walowas are nicked-named the Swiss Alps of America.
