Helvetinjärvi, Seitseminen

Some hiking in Helvetinjärvi ("Lake of Hell") and Seitseminen national parks.

Furka Pass and the Rhone Glacier

On the way back from EFTF2014 in Neuchatel to Zurich airport we took the scenic route via Grimsel Pass (2165 m) and Furka Pass (2429 m), stopping to look at the ever shrinking Rhone Glacier on the way.
