Furtschellas Wasserweg by kuschelirmel Furtschellas Wasserweg by kuschelirmel
This photo was stitched together from two pictures taken during our holidays in Switzerland in September 2007.

This was during a tour that takes you past 6 lakes ("lejins" in Romansh) - this must've been at approximately 2520m above sea level.

Another breathtaking view,I take it is is frozen over in the winter,was this the peak of the hike as 2520m above sea level makes me feel quite breathless.Was there much flora up there as it looks quite dried out ??
Excellent work with the stitching :heart:

It's rather dry up there, not much vegetation, but still surprising what does still grow there. The highest point of the hike was at about 2630m or something. the peaks around this place are over 3000m above sea level, the highest one, the corvatsch, has a mountain "railway" (its not on rails, its a gondola where the passengers sit - I can't find a proper translation) and the top station is at 3330m - their slogan is "corvatsch - top of the world" and I think it fits kinda nicely ^^;
What you can see on the mountains is the first snow of the year - in September. They have places up there with permafrost, they never thaw. That might be the reason for the lakes up there: the water cannot get into the ground because of the frost... The Corvatsch is one of the glaciers there (glacier goes down the other side though).

I suppose with the underlying stone of the mountains will add to the dryness as well..I suspect the water is quite safe to drink being so far up.Must be really refereshing.
Yes top of the world would most probably be an understatement for such an untouched and natural area.Lets hope it is with us for a while longer.. :heart:
