May 28: trip to Ramosch

On this day I planned to explore even further downstream from Scuol, starting at the town of Ramosch, the next one beyond Sent.

Can someone enlighten me as to what these hosses is up to?

Hmm. Looking a little less clement now. Hmmmmmmmm.

Best grill spot on Earth, or best grill spot in the Universe?

Once again on the hour while passing through Susch.

A pretty long-distance view downstream. The En's color is almost like limestone or marble.

To right, the littlest house, or so it seems — is that an even littler house to the left??

Again we trundled past the Queen Anne's lace and into the sight of a cloud-darkened Chastè Steinsberg.

6802

The bulk of Ardez.

The highway on the way to Ardez is elevated over train tracks not visible here.

At Scuol: churches.

"Crusch Alba," a very common Engadin appellation, means "White Cross," the significance of which I do not have a good handle on. which refers to the Swiss flag. Of course. I mean, who wouldn't get that?

Just a hint of Sent from near Scuol.

6817

A hamlet, down by the river; this must be Pradella.

6818

Confusing swoops of transmission lines. Don't get snared!

I no longer quite understand how I got this shot. But anyway it's a cool result. This is Ramosch and vicinity.

A clearer Ramosch view. Note how the hill terraces to the right have trees at their boundaries, which I don't remember seeing elsewhere.
