After seeing the mountain range across the lake from our appartement every day, we finally went there to take a closer look. The highest peak of this part of the Alps is the Säntis. We were conveniently taken up the mountain top by a cable car – the view was breathtaking. In the distance we could see Lake Constance …

 
Now and then, we could see mountain climbers in the snow, sometimes on top of dangerous looking cliffs. How happy I am that I don’t have to do that!

 
Sabine enjoying the view … (she had forgotten her sunglasses and had to wear old scratchy ones that we found in my car)

 
A trail was starting here … I took a few steps, imagining what it would be like … the snow was knee high, and very near that rope, there was the abyss … this kind of fun is clearly not for me.

 
Switzerland was the first country that invited refugees from Tibet when things got difficult there. Good to see a stupa here!

 
Going back down after a few hours in the sky …

 
oh, and on the way out we had this close encounter with an alternate reality …
