May 28: Tarasp Fontana 2
Then some more of the rest of Fontana.
Trompe-l'oeil windowframe sgraffito and a pious mural — but what is that round hole next to the Holy Spirit??
Looking across the way to Fontana Sura. Note the intense firewood collection at lower left [via tree trunks].
Rather than hiking back down as I'd come up, I took the road to the right, heading up the Engadin, with the intention of ending up at Ardez.
The road's retaining wall considerately recessed to accommodate this fountain.
I think this winding platform might have been another bridge over the stream, but its construction is perplexing and fascinating.
Houses, church, castle.
At the western edge of the village, Chasa Craps.
Houses, church, castle, once again for good measure, but staccato this time rather than legato.
Plants and house tenaciously clinging to a cliff.
A trail of cows as if strewn from the Schloss.
Back down to the streamside trail I had hiked up on. Way back down.
Ftan-Pitschen and a plethora of terraces. Plerraces.
Closeup on the Chastè showcasing what appears to be a very zigzaggy covered stair.
One last look at Fontana, perhaps actually the most comprehensive yet.
