After our train ride through the mountains there were still many tunnels to go through to get to the other side of Switzerland.
This one was not too long but some of them were several minutes traveling under the mountain.
When we got off the train there was this really coll old bridge we had just gone over and a very pretty little stream running down the mountain.
Heading down the mountain. Village below. There were hair pin curves all the way down and you needed to pretty much ride the brakes as the road was so steep.
A gorgeous valley at the bottom of the road in between the mountains.
One of those turns I was mentioning!
We stopped for coffee in the village. It was quaint and beautiful and had a river running right through it. Probably the tributary started up were we were. Look at the colour. It was full of sediment picked up from it's trip down the mountain. It was flowing fast and looked cold!
You can see the rapids right ion town There were really nice walkway bridges every 50 ft or so in the town.
Leaving the town and driving through the mountains and valley to get to......
Yes! Another train through the mountains. This was so worth it. Cut off many miles of travel and
was really fun!
So many orchards are starting to sprout up and beautiful farms in the valleys.
This is the front window view of the first place we stayed in Switzerland close to the border.A little apartment my friend had found to rent for the night.
This is the view on the other side.The Swiss Mountains were mind blowing. I could sit and stare at them for hours!
Look closely. I was surprised to see the cows are walking over the bridge to get to the other side of the farm. Almost missed the pick as I was watching.
Some cranes seem to be enjoying the view of the fantastic mountains with me.
Look at that waterfalls! Can you imagine the sound?
I love this picture. It looks really Swiss to me, Majestic mountains and Swiss Chalets.
Next post we get to Italy. Venice to be precise! Stay tuned for more!
