When we arrived in Switzerland early March, the whole of the earth was aching to burst forth with spring!  The wildflower bulbs were beginning their beautiful bloom along the roadsides.  The trees though still bare, upon closer inspection had furry little bundles of leaves just a breath away from roaring to life.  Another week, and the entire scene would be different.

It had been over ten years since our last visit to this stunningly beautiful nation, and we took what free time we had to explore the mountains and lakes near Lausanne.

On the road into Val d'Herens in the Swiss Alps is a very interesting geological feature, "The Earth Pyramids of Euseigne"

 On this most beautiful of days, we went up and down a couple of deep valleys with a tram ride to the peak of Le Brevant in Chamonix, France.

We finished our time in Switzerland with a few days in the city of Yverdon, staying just a few meters away from the ancient Savoy Castle, dating from the 13th century, in the city centre.
