A train brightens up the scene on one of the many unusual spiral viaducts in the Albulla Valley Switzerland. 10 minutes later, most of the snow on the mountain in the background disapeared in a massive avalanche which moved most of a forest as well. Quite frightening to watch. If you find paths closed in Switzerland, take heed there is always a reason!

The contrast of the red train adds a fine detail to the imposing mountain backdrop Peter...interesting account and good sound advice, we will be there in May, June.
