Visit to Interlaken, Switzerland
26th to 28th July 2009
I use the tag 'Snap Shot' to describe these photo based posts and probably nowhere deserves the title more Switzerland. We began our trip in the town of Interlaken; a mecca for outdoor activities.
Not a bad view for the centre of town.Flowers were everywhere; both wild and cultivated.
On our first afternoon we cycled around the beautiful Lake Thun.
Giessbach Falls on the lake's north shore.It was time for adventure with a canyoning trip down the Grimsel Canyon. Things started with a decent abseil.Here we go! The journey down the canyon involved rappelling, sliding, jumping and swinging.
When the action calmed down the views were magnificent.
Probably the best way to appreciate the spectacular nature of the area is from the air; paragliding anyone?

Yes this palce so spectacular it even has a rainbow.
