Walking towards a mountain range of spectacular cliffs and ridges.

The sheer bulk of mountain is spectacular. It makes our man made structures look very puny. Rain over the centuries has formed scree slopes of loose rock fragments on slopes of the ridges.

A hang glider getting ready to glide over the mountains.

The wind has caught him.

He is off and away.

Going for short walk along the mountain road.

Mountains with snow still on them. It is late summer in the northern hemisphere in September. For Ken and Harriet Aitken, this was an unusual sight. We come from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia and we have a subtropical climate. Australia’s winter, from June to August, offers snow skiing in the Australian Alps.

Coming back down to the Klosters Cable Car base.

The End Of The Cable Car Ride at Kloster … Awesome !!
