On a recent hike in the canton of Jura, Switzerland, we ended in the town of St. Ursanne, a medieval walled-in town with a 12 century church. This unique area is considered the Jewel of the Jura, and a quick visit, it is easy to see why. Fascinating architecture, set in the midst of the Jura white stone mountains, is almost a step back in time. Below are the windows of the cloister next to the church.

Tucked away in the Alps, above the familiar town of Grindelwld, Switzerland, is the wonderful Burghaus Bort. Open nearly the entire year, they are hosts to hikers, tourists, and at this time of year skiers. For more information check out a full write up on Burghaus Bort here. This photo was taken on a snowy December evening, a cozy place to stay for the night, or several nights!

This incredible, bronze statue sits in a nondescript square in a town outside of Toulouse, France. The sculpture is the remarkable creation of French artist Bruno Catalano. His sculptures are detailed and leave a great deal to the imagination, often causing individuals to wonder if the work, or life we pack into our briefcases robs us of the very essence of our humanity? Catalano’s deep, thought – provoking works of art inspire this weeks photo challenge – transmogrify.

Finding our happy place in the midst of winter is aided by reflecting on the beauty we found in the warmth of a late year sunset over Pilatus and Lake Luzern from the town of Weggis; the joy of a pleasant day past and the anticipation of a new day ahead.
