May 29: Klosters to Zürich
To go southwest, I first had to go northwest.
Next to Klosters train station is also a cablecar station, the base of the Gotschnabahn.
The waiting room windows on the platform are same construction as the train windows, which I find rather meta, or something, whenever I encounter ir.
This is the striking Sunnibergbrücke over the Landquart River.
A brief glimpse of a mysterious ravine.
A brief glimpse of a mysterious cow.
Soft-looking terraces among soft-looking trees.
I wonder what these curious fanlike pieces at the edges of the overpass are.
Strong sun in the foreground but the sky still looking threatening further on.
A brief glimpse of a mysterious minibarn.
At Landquart, I transferred again to continue to Zurich; here's the new train arriving.
We snaked along the southern shore of the Walensee, which lies at the border of Cantons St. Gallen and Glarus. As see here, the north shore is a bit steep in places. The Churfirsten rise up directly above these cliffs.
To the east, with the clouds looking hot and heavy, the scene looked more like, I dunno, Indonesia than Switzerland.
Somewhere in Canton Glarus or Schwyz, between the Walensee and the Zürisee, typical Ostmittelland farm architecture.
Huh! A distinctly Bernese-looking farmhouse.
Now on the Zürisee, getting closer to Züri itself, as can be gleaned from the extensive development along the shore.
Some of these with their Ründi also look Bernese.
Deep into the bowels of Zürich Hauptbahnhof.
Pretty cool exposed-structure tectonics at the platforms.
