Winter is coming in Switzerland, so is the second COVID-19 wave :-(. Time to look back and to share a beautiful hike at the Lake Sils (Silsersee) in Switzerland I enjoyed back this summer.
There are so many mountains and lakes in Switzerland, probably impossible to visit them all. Something on my ‘bucket list’ for a long time was to get up to the Arnisee, and I finally did it.
A cold front reached the Alps on the weekend, covering the high peaks with snow.
Most snow is now gone with the sky clearing up, but still making a good contrast to the green down below. Things will definitely change in a few weeks…
Happy Covering 🙂
The ‘Göscheneralp’ is a beautiful valley in the central part of Switzerland with an embankment dam building an artificial lake. The valley hosts several beautiful hikes and climbing routes. The area is the home of several SAC (Swiss Alpine Club) huts, including the Bergseehütte which is the topic of this hike.
With a heat wave rolling over Europe, a hike these days needs some careful planning. With outside temperatures in the 36-39°C range, I prefer something inside a forest. And for this, the hike around the Fallenflue was perfect.
It can be the small things which can make me wonder. While hiking up a trail up to a mountain, a snail in the middle of a tree trunk had my attention. A beautiful coiled shell!
Impression from one of my recent mountain hiking tours: Mountain spring water flowing slowly through grass meadows, building a symbiosis with green algae. Maybe a camera cannot reflect the number of green colors the human eye is able to see?
Happy Greening 🙂
