I want to raise awareness about ovarian cancer and share a positive message. I want to encourage people to talk about cancer, and not to shy away from the topic. My way is to focus on the future by creating My Survival List, a list of things I want to do to fulfill my dreams, starting now.
I hope my blog could serve as an inspiration to others to start fulfilling dreams and not to wait.
Even though it is September, we have had amazingly warm weather this weekend, so we did the "5 Lakes Hike" in Pizol. This hike is a well-known, classic mountain hike and it has been on our to-do list, ever since we moved to Switzerland, but for some reason we have not done it until now.
The hike takes you from Pizolhütte to Gaffia, and on the way you enjoy spectacular views of the Alps of Eastern Switzerland. You walk by five beautiful mountain lakes: Wangsersee, Wildsee, Schottensee, Schwarzsee and Baschalvasee. The lakes differ in size, and the water shifts in all shades of blue and green.
I regard the "5 Lakes Hike" being one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done.
On one of the peaks
The alpine landscape is exceptionally varied and the hike takes you high above the tree-line, over several summits. After having walked uphill and finally ascending a peak, the view is striking! It stretches for miles and miles, and it feels almost endless.
One of the things I have on my Survival List, is to enjoy a summer picnic in the Swiss Alps. I definitely enjoyed a delicious picnic by the emerald green Lake Schottensee this weekend, hence action 36 is completed!
