Grindelwald was nearly flooded

The rock slide in Glacier lake provoked a rise in the water level, and river Black Lucina he threatened to withdraw from the coast. |

The whole country spent the first warmer – maximum temperature for the first time climbed above 30 degrees, and in Geneva reached 33.8 degrees – a weekend in a relaxed state, except for residents of Grindelwald.

300 000 cubic meters of stone blocks and rubble collapsed on Friday evening from the mountain slopes in Glacial lake. Spontaneously born at the foot of the Eiger, it keeps for many years the inhabitants of the region in tension. The lake water flows into the river Black Lucina, a narrow but rapid, which rushes from the valley of Grindelwald. In early summer, the lake slowly filled with water, and the higher it rises the level, the more adrenaline enters the blood people, especially the restless feeling of power in the region.

The lakes of Killarney, the gorge Dungloe or trying to lose No. 2

We were in Killarney with only one purpose – to see the famous lake, but what we got was beyond our imaginable expectations. And that’s all because in the inform-Bureau, where our eyes ran from the abundance of choice of excursions in County Kerry, grandma “God dandelion” with a beautiful Oxford accent strongly recommended us to take a trip through the Gorge Dungloe.

And we needed to catch, is very necessary, because at 19.00 with bus station Killarney Continue reading
