OUR HOME, THE SWISS ALPS!
MADELEINE and ERIC on the quest for Photo subjects!
To enjoy you, the visitors of our websites!
THE GRANITE HEART OF SWISS ALPS!
These are the granite mountains right in the heart of the Swiss Alps!
A paradise for all ambitious rock climbers!
THE WEATHER DIVIDER OF EUROPE!
They are also the most important weather divide between Northern and Southern Europe!
From the north a rain front moves up, while this is pushed back in the south by the alpine foehn!
RAIN FRONT, OR ALPINE FOEHN?
Since we are optimist, we oriented ourselves to the south.
And hoped, that we do not have to descend into the valley in a heavy rain!
Unfortunately, optimism sometimes does not pay off!
We arrived down in the valley like the proverbial drowned rats!
EXPOSED SUSPENSION BRIDGE ADVENTURE
On the way to this adventure, we already passed by this granite range some time ago!
To take shots of crossing a swinging suspension bridge over a deep gorge!
And of the climbing up of a freestanding ladder at the end of this bridge!
AN ADVENTURE, THAT'S NOTHING FOR PEOPLE WITH VERTIGO!
