Clear winter days

During Winter a haze hangs over the lake due to the temperature differential, so for much of the time we can't see the mountains across the lake and when it is a clear day we try to take advantage of it.

A couple of weeks ago we got a fantastic clear day and so we headed up to La Dole behind Nyon to check out the view.

We caught the lift to the top of the mountain, where there is an observatory, and from where you can look out over the lake and towards the French Alps.

After taking a few photos at the top, we quickly moved on because it was so cold and windy. We followed the ridge where the snow was windblown and formed amazing patterns.

From there we walked down the mountain through the trees towards Cuvaloup where we had a warming soup before heading home.

We're really lucky to have such beautiful countryside in our back yard!
