The phenomenal weather continues, said by locals to be the best weather this summer. We are so fortunate. Today we strolled to one of our favourite locations – Fluhalp (or as the English often write it – ‘Flualp’. It was too hot to do too much hard work.
Fluhalp is a place with a wonderful high hut that commands a magnificent panoramic view – where we partook of some wine and Apfelstrudel. But along the way we passed the lake called Stellisee and that just adds another dimension to an already classic view. There is no one right view across this lake and so I captured quite a few and there were a considerable number of other people with the same intention. But it is actually remarkably quiet out here – schools in Germany and Switzerland have already re-started, and the Mountain Restaurants, Cable Cars, and Paths are much quieter than we have experienced previously when we have come earlier in the summer. And that is all good news. The peace and quietness that we are privileged to find in the mountains is something very special.
I have a host of images to work through when we return home, meanwhile other images are being uploaded to my Instagram feed where I am known as ‘andyhooker’. Do take a look and follow if you are interested.
