Mountains from Habsburg


The view from the Habsburg hill can be splendid if the weather conditions cooperate. These are probably the Graubünden mountains (looking towards the south-east). Click on the photo for a 1920 pixel by 2560 pixel image.

Update: A reader writes that the mountains are the Glarner ones. Thanks, Andreas!

I happy you got lucky with a clear day for your shot. Great contrast of the green fields to the snow covered mountains.

Once again air quality in San Diego is bad, I could hardly see our local peaks as I drove in this morning from all smoke from the various fires burning in SoCal.

Great Pic! I'm quite convinced this is mainly the Glärnisch mountain (Glarnese Alps, 2915m) which has a number of peaks namely Vrenelisgärtli (2904m) and Bächistock (2914m).

Hi

When you ever drive to Glarus go on the right side up to the "Klöntal"!!
http://www.carto.net/andre.mw/photos/2004/07/31_kloental_braunwald_walensee/20040731-183749_kloental_sonnenuntergang.jpg
On the beginning of the vally there is an reservoir.
When you drive over the dam you will come to a nice beach. The beach is locatet behind the campground. On the photo on the right side is the "Vrenelisgärtli". At sunny day you lie on a beach and in the back 1000 meters higher - snow in the mountains !!
It's great.
On your way back to home - take the road over the "Pragelpass".
At tripp to a wonderland.
But be careful the width of the road is made for one car.
