May 28: Zernez evening 2

I kept on exploring.

Oh... oh dear.

As frequently happens on Zernez evenings, I was drawn up the mountainside past the churches.

The Chastè Wildenberg and the info center in plain view, and a small foreshortened stretch of the En in the distance.

There's that mystery clock-like structure. Now I'm thinking maybe someone's explained to me what these are, but if so I've fully forgotten again. I sort of like the mystery actually; it adds to their surreality. Note that the hand is in the same position as in the 2005 photo.

As I rose further, the view widened out to encompass both churches.

Eventually I got up to this plateau that I'd discovered on the previous trip. I don't know what the story is on it, but it's a superb outlook over the town.

Voted #1 view bench in Zernez six years and running!

A nice comprehensive view of the southern reaches of Zernez, known as Clüs, over to the left, along with the center of town at right. In the middle is, I think, a public pool; the building just beyond the info center is the Familienbad. It's fascinating that the field just past that has been preserved from building, while Clüs has encircled it fully. I wonder how that happens to be.

A whole array of excellent view benches.
