Ein Hauch von Winter im morgendlichen Nebel.

Ein Hauch von Winter im morgendlichen Nebel.
Blick von der Gesslerburg Richtung Küssnacht.

View from the Gessler Castle to Küssnacht.
Only a few hundred meters away from here (47.0915, 08.4521) is the "Hohle Gasse", a narrow path in the forest.
It's the place were, according to a legend, William Tell shot the tyrannous bailiff Herrmann Gessler with an arrow from his crossbow; and so Switzerland has been freed from the rule of Habsburg. Happened around 1290. Well, this is the very short version ;-)

Nicht einmal mehr die Eidgenossen haben einen richtigen Winter zu bieten - wo soll das noch alles enden? ;-)
Schönes Bild jedenfalls.

Naja, wenn man etwas weiter in die Höhe geht, können sie sich vor lauter Schnee kaum mehr erwehren! :-)
