It is hard to beat an exploding-snowman-head in a follow-up post.
European countries with such a long history have, by sheer time, amassed incredible buildings, structures, monuments, and fountains that shout to the visitor: “I have been here a long time!”
A first time visitor to Switzerland suffers from camera overload: so many photo opportunities, that it is overwhelming to pick and choose.
As a returning tourist, I visited Switzerland by myself in July 2012 to see a newborn grandson. My photos naturally focused on him and his parents. Each day, I rode a bus through the city of Bern and viewed the city differently every time.
My second post on S-T is this: A Shrine of Time
|These are stone watering troughs from old farmlands, gathered together for artistic appreciation.|
|An old English telephone booth without its glass, in which a plant had grown|
|A trail marker along the Aure River|
|A tree along the Aure River, and it is hanging on with its roots until the next snow-melt flood|
Sometimes the smaller Shrines of Time speak the loudest.
