Floral Friday Challenge.

While in Lucerne, last September,

we took a drive to Engelberg

to visit a small tourist farm.

engelberg_switzerland_0324Once at the farm we were split into groups

for a two-horse power city exploration drive.

and we headed back to the farm.

Distance.

After a rain ride up steep Mt Rigi, in Switzerland…mt-rigi_0086this last two hundred metre walk look long and steep.

A quick conference with my knees,

they agreed they could make it…slowly.

The trip down, this shot is about halfway,

was just as arduous as there was very little to hold on to.

mt-rigi_0068It was well worth the effort as the view from to top,

over Lake Lucerne, was just stunning.

around this charming town.

engelberg-switzerland_0380Having spent 55 years of my life in

Victoria’s Western District,

where our ‘mountain’ peaks are

about 300 metres above sea level, I think this part

of the world is absolutely beautiful.

However, I think I would missing the sun rise

and set on a near sea-level horizon after a while.
