The ALPS appeared today!!


The glorious Alps were showing this afternoon!!

I've been here in Switzerland exactly two weeks and today was the first time the Alps appeared.
It takes special atmospheric conditions for the mountains to become visible so far away.
Enlarge the photos with a few clicks and feast your eyes!

On our noon break I walked quickly down to the beach to get a good view.
"Quickly" because sometimes they disappear exactly during your 15-minute walk to Lake Neuchatel.

The Community of Grandchamp is on the west side of Lake Neuchatel.
See how far the Alps are?

Oh that's where the soft cheese comes from!

Suzanne said...

Yes, I saw them too. It's ethereal and a God sent moment.

Dina said...

Cloudia, the name is similar BUT "Neufchâtel is a soft, slightly crumbly, mold-ripened cheese made in the Neufchâtel-en-Bray, French region of Normandy."
But no worries, we have plenty of great Swiss cheeses. :)
