The Murg lakes

Hiking season is almost over. Last week it snowed in Switzerland. Even in the lower parts of the country, like Zurich, we saw snowflakes falling on the wet floor. The snow didn’t last long here, but it’s already starting to accumulate in the mountains. Soon the mountain passes will close […]
