Ok, you are wondering what I did. Well, I climbed Mt. Kronberg which is a smaller mountain in front of Mt. Santis. It has an elevation of about 4800 feet. The views were stunning. I know there are no pictures. I am a total loser. I didn't bring the camera with me. I didn't want to carry it. The weather was forecasted to rain, so I thought we wouldn't get any good photos anyway. So wrong! This photo I borrowed from Webshots. It would have made for the perfect Christmas card. Just imagine the last scene in the Sound of Music where they are climbing the mountains into safety. You could see all the way to the Bodensee which is only 10 minutes from our house, but 40 minutes from there. On top was a cute little church. Winston was so cute he said,"Mommy, why are the cows sitting outside the church." It was just like being Heidi the cows and goats were roaming all over the mountain. My only complaint is the smell. I still haven't adjusted to it because it bothers me just as much as the first day we arrived. One good thing is that it wasn't to hot. I have been actually complaining about all the rain here in Switzerland, but it does make for good hiking. Now, after climbing for two hours straight up I need a good soak in the bath because my knees are killing me.
