It has been snowing down to the lower areas in Switzerland the past days: Winter finally arrived in my area. So I consider last weekend the ‘weekend before winter’, at least in a meteorological sense. And because it was a wonderful ‘inversion’ situation with fog below and sunny sky above, it is a good time to share a few impressions.

Storm “Sabine” is coming …
One week after the storm “Petra”, the new one named “Sabine” is approaching Switzerland. This winter is really special so far: nearly no snow, record high temperatures and it feels more like spring than winter…
One Year after the Storm ‘Adrian’
Back in October 2018, the storm ‘Adrian’ has hit South Tyrol badly. With a wind speed up to 140 km/h and up to 400 mm rain it had a deep impact on the area. Killing an estimated number of 14 million trees.
The Yellow Collection
Now I can tell the truth: the hidden goal of this color posts is to check if I’m color blind or not (and you can check the same :-). After the lilac collection, here is the last one: this time the color is yellow, and includes a small trap.
Collection of Lilac Flowers
After the ‘blue‘ series, here is yet another hicking flower color collection: Lilac!

Four-Lake-Hike: Engelberg – Melchsee-Frutt
Switzerland has many lakes, the “4-Lake Hike” in the Jochpass region is probably one of the most beautiful hikes in the central part of Switzerland: beautiful flora, stunning mountain and lake views in the mighty Mt. Titlis area.
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.
Happy Klöntaling 🙂
