A wonderful weekend enjoying some great hiking Saturday. Me C and our Swedish friend C got in the car 10 am and heading for the mountain tops in our hiking gear. We got a fantastic hike.
The fog rolling in over the mountains. Weather changes are much more quick up in the mountains. We had moments of fog as well as clear skies. Luckily no rain until the last part on our way down and back.
The beauty of nature and the peace as you find as you walk through lush green forests is just sooo relaxing. A spa visit for your soul and mind. It clears your mind in the best way just like a good climb makes you tired in the best possible way. This is just the way I love spending my weekends.
The happy cows of Switzerland are always present and never far away when you are out hiking.
We had to work hard to reach these views making a climb of about 700 meters. So worth it once you get there though. You can start the see the first fall colors sweeping across the landscape. A good climb is what make a great hike in so many ways even if it might knock the breath out of you.
A well deserved little fika break halfway up. The nice things about hiking in Switzerland is that you almost always pass a small restaurant as you are hiking. It was quite warm and humid this day so after a steep climb to this place it was nice to sit down for a moment and dry off a little.
The hills and countryside are still quite green after all the rain we had this summer. So relaxing to walk a long fields, on small country roads, through the forest. A great hike with good friends that just is one of the best ways to enjoy a Saturday to me.
Sunday was a rainy day in Basel. Good day for reading. Continued reading my book in German while the rain poured outside.
We also started going looking and going over rental places for our stay in Florida. There is so much to choose from. Many very nice places.
A rainy day is also a good day for baking a nice and yummy apple pie . Best way to end a Sunday with a good movie and a slice of apple pie. Hey fall is here and it is apple times.
Today Monday, new week. A busy week. A friend from Sweden is coming Thursday for a mountain bike weekend with C. I have German class this evening. We get to log into a virtual classroom and chat with each other and the teacher for two hours every Monday evening.
