Swiss mountains of power

A good friend kindly invited me to cycle around some Swiss mountains, near where he lives, and I thought some of the pictures are sufficiently nice to form a blog. As this blog is posted on the company web site, I think it politic to start with this picture of the Hydro-electric power station on lake Walensee. We swam here after an 1000m climb over Klausens.

On the second day we cycled and walked up Leistchamm, a 2100m mountain adjacent to Lake Walensee. These pictures were taken enroute and the sound file is the sound of Swiss cows eating grass (yes, listen).

They are very noisy eaters
