A beautiful but hazy day in the Bernese Oberland

Today we visited the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland. It was a beautiful sunny day by about 10 a.m., but the distant mountains remained hazy almost all day. We went to Trummelbach Falls. Using an elevator and steps one is able to go inside the mountain to see the falls.  I think everyone in our group saw at least part of the falls, and several went all the way to the top.

Here is a photo I made of one of the colorful buildings. It is typical here for houses and other buildings to display beautiful flowers under their window”I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine, He who pastures his flock among the lilies.”s. This provide color for those passing buy as well as for those in the house. This reminds me of the Shunamite (Shulamite) girl’s description of her beloved.

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine, He who pastures his flock among the lilies.” (Song of Solomon 6:3)

A little color adds a lot to life even when one has to deal with difficult earthly problems.

Both in Lucerne and in Interlaken we saw some small tour groups traveling on Segways. This service is offered in the City of David in Jerusalem (click here), but it is the first time I have seen it in action. I think each participtant can hear the leader speaking through the earphones in the helmet.
