Swiss Alps

This is technically a botanical trip to the Swiss Oberland in June...
although I was more interested in the scenery, food, mammals and insects...

We were based in Murren and strayed as far as Interlaken....
taking cable cars to the summits of the Schilthorn, Mannlichen and Nierderhorn...
as well as a ferry on Lake Thun...

It was generally sunny during the daytime
but with some heavy hail storms in evening...
until the last day when it clouded over with drizzle and some heavy rain...

I may not have identified all of the pix totally correctly...(?)
