Last day of our 1-week vacation at Lake Constance, and the sky was all grey everywhere.

Everywhere? As we could see on the webcam image of the Säntis mountain …

 
… it was just the Lake area that was covered with high fog. We had been on top of the Säntis already so we decided to drive to Bregenz, the Austrian city on the east end of the lake, and take the cable car to the Pfänder mountain – this mountain is not as high but its top still looked out of the fog layer on this day.

View from the ground …

 
… (fruits of the season) …

 
… and the view from the top of the Pfänder over the lake and the fog layer towards the Säntis range on the other side.

 
The Vorarlberg area of western Austria is famous for its beautiful mountains, forests, and the cheese made of the cow milk.

 
It was as warm as in summer up here …

 
We walked for a few miles and met idyllic little villages inhabited by friendly people …

 
Eventually we took the cable car down into the fog again …

 
What a nice place – so many very different landscapes can be found around the Lake Constance area. We just had one week but we easily could have spent more time!
