Säntis 3.0: Exploring the mountains

1 Permalink

It’s Friday – whoot! I am currently still in Geneva and enjoying every moment of it – I will tell you all about it when I am back! I found some more photos from my trip to the Säntis moutain I had told you about a few posts ago. I still cannot get over the beauty of nature when looking at these photos and I really want to go back up to the mountains again. Let’s see what is planned for this weekend!

To my surprise we saw quite a few birds up there! They glide so beautifully through the thin air it almost seemed as if they were in slow-motion. Yet, when they got close to the edge of the view-platform, they would fall down in a steep, steep angle, were it almost looked as if they had suddenly gotten a heart attack! It did scare me the first time actually, as one of these birds came right by me – not even a meter away! We figured that they would do their special jump dives everytime a visitor came outside onto the platform, probably in the hope they would receive some food. There is a restaurant up there so it makes sense that they think they would get something. What I did not understand however, was why they were up there, 2000(+)m above sea level, in an arctic freezing enviorment, when they could be further down at every other restaurant or house near-by. Yes- too much talking about birds now!

I can’t wait to tell you all about Geneva and hopefully I’ll remember to take a photo or two whilst I am here. Enjoy the rest of your Friday! xo
