Village near the Grimsel pass (photo taken from the car).
A stacked house. Above the ground floor, above the front door, vertical beams carry round, flat stones, on top of which the top floor of the house rests. I don't remember where I found this photo. We did not take it.
Hairpins in the road ahead disappear, up the mountain side and into the cloud/mist of the Grimsel pass (photo taken from the car).
View of the Rhône-glacier in the mist (photo taken from the car). This glacier is the (larger part of the) source of the Rhône river.
The lake is called the Totensee, and is on the highest point of the Grimsel pass, 2160 metres above sea level. Wikipedia writes that in November 2006 all fish in the lake died as a result of an unknown cause. But what did you expect, with a name like that...
