Switzerland 2013: Arosa in winter (a.k.a. the silence of the squirrels)

posted by Martin Rubli at 11:38

The second installment in the White Switzerland 2013 series. We figured we'd go feed some squirrels along the Eichhörnliweg (squirrel trail) in Arosa, but either the squirrels had gone south for the winter or been (over)fed by tourists in the few days before. While we did see a handful of deers from afar not a single squirrel showed up, so there was really nothing left to do but point the lens at the snow.
