Default back home with more pics from the Alps

Can' t resist posting some more views... More will be uploaded into my album



The fountain in 2nd pic flows into a single piece of carved wood which is so old and so worn that it looks like a piece of stone



Believe it or not, there is a hiking trail which takes you to the top of those impressive cliffs. You can' t see it, but it is in the leftmost part of the cliffs

Oh Michel - you're hurting me! That's just too much. Do you ever get bored with the scenery? It's amazing, what god hath wrought.

Thanks so much for sharing. Good for the soul.

Don't you have nice pics from some of your research cruises ?

Ever bored ? I'm afraid (?) no. I've been hiking in this area for about 10 years and I'm far from being bored, there are so many different things to see.

One of the difference between the Alps and the Rocky Mountains I saw when in Boulder, Co, more generally between the US and Europe, the landscape changes relatively rapidely on relatively short distances in Europe. I remember driving a hundred miles in the US and still seeing the same kind of view.

Thanks Michel. It's beautiful.

Solid rock. Totally different from the big gravel and sand piles that I live on.
