Autumn? in Switzerland…

It’s late this year. The woods across from my balcony are turning, yes, but not very far or fast. We can’t scrunch through autumn leaves as we wander along the trails, and the predominant colour is still green. So let’s have a look at some other slightly autumnal Swiss pics.

 

Below was taken in canton Graubünden in south-east Switzerland. We had many autumn holidays here when the boys were small. It’s a great place for woodland walks, campfires and sausage-sizzling, though I was never brave enough to go up in a balloon.

This one’s in Engadin, in the same canton. I wonder where the track goes…

Also in Engadin, Tarasp Castle. I’ve only visited that area once, and it seemed like the longest walk ever to get to the castle. But the views are incredible.

This is Bergün, the little village we often spent our autumn holiday in, back in the day.
Still in Graubünden, Lake Sils.
And we’ll finish off with some cows. This is the time of year they’re brought down – looking very festive – from a summer spent grazing on the alps.

And no, I’ve never tried paragliding or whatever the brave person in the above photo’s doing. I like my feet firmly on the ground, in all seasons…

That was Switzerland. Next time, I’ll have some very exciting book news and a post about sunny Scotland. 🙂
