During the last week of my summer break
I was able to do a few beautiful outings
One of them was to hike around an Alpine lake.
The light was perfect.
The lake was surrounded by rugged mountains and green pastures.
If you look carefully, you will see a waterfall in the distance
and on the upper right you can see the white tip of a glacier.
Zooming in on the waterfall from the other side of the lake.
and I was happy enough to walk at the base of these rocky slopes.
Each part of our hike gave us a different scene.
A chalet nestled in a clearing surrounded by pine trees
and fresh green slopes.
Another chalet on our trail.
There was smoke coming out of the chimney
and look at those lovely cow bells all lined up!
A wooden jetty leading to the lake
taking on the green colours of the surrounding scenery.
The air was so pure and clear
The views change constantly
and there's such peacefulness.
We were so blessed with the best sunny day of the week to do this outing!
Now I'm back in work mode, I have this lovely day to remember!
