Large round Uster-East
23.4.2017 Grosse Runde Uster-Ost On this Sunday, at 10 o'clock I decided to go for a hike. The weather was beautiful and there was no hurry. I didn't really have a plan where I would go to. Just wanded to find out how far I could walk in one day. As there are plenty of hiking guideposts as well as bus and train stations, it's...

Lunch in Zimikon - all about eating and being eaten
As there are many animal lovers on hikr, I decided to post the following pictures although they have not been taken on an excursion and some are even out of focus. I get to work by bycicle. The village's name is Zimikon, a part of Volketswil in the canton of Zurich. Now, as the days get warmer, I enjoy staying outside during...

Ice Age II in Hombrechtikon - Chlausbachtobel and Sageli (SG)
The aera of Zürcher Oberland (Zurich Uplands) was shaped by Ice Age. Glaciers have left behind plains, terraces, ravines, and creeks. They have had a great influence on industrial and economical culture as well as on the agriculture of the area. My project is to document waterfalls, and there are many to be found in this...

Ice Age I in Hombrechtikon - Tobelbach and Eichwistobel
Getting prepared My project is to find and take pictures of waterfalls. Many of them in the canton of Zurich cannot be found on a normal map. My sons gave me the book "Wasserwunder" as a birthday present. They are glad that their mother has finally found a hobby and no longer tries to persuade them to come along on hiking tours....

Rambles through a Zurich wilderness II - archeological discovery at Dorfbach, Üssikon
As I want to do some sports I worked out a project: I collect waterfalls which are not mapped. On my free days, between shopping, cooking and daily work I take my bike, ride to a nearby ravine (Tobel), find a waterfall, climb down the forest slope, take pictures, return home, write a report. After some trials and experiences I've...

Rambles through a Zurich wilderness I - Schuelhusbach, Üssikon
My project is to find waterfalls in the county of Zurich which are not mapped. Though one might think that the Swiss Federal Office of Topographyhttps://map.geo.admin.ch is allmighty and unfaillible, there are plenty of waterfalls missing. To discover them I first have a look on the GIS browser https://maps.zh.ch/ opening the...

Bin im Wald
Das ist mein Wald. Er lässt mich durch, weil er sieht, dass ich harmlos bin. Er sieht, dass nur ich das bin und sonst nichts. So habe ich das immer empfunden. Dieser Wald war für mich Spielplatz und Zufluchtsort zugleich (obwohl es nichts gab, wovor ich hätte flüchten müssen, man sagt das nur so). Das ist schon über 30...

Ursprungtobel
Um mein Wasserfallprojekt vorwärts zu bringen, machte ich mich heute auf den Weg nach Dübendorf. Ich möchte Wasserfälle finden und fotografieren, hinter denen es eine Höhle gibt und die nicht auf der Landkarte eingetragen sind. Bei Dübendorf gibt es mindestens zwei, einen im Schlosstobel, oberhalb der Ruine Dübelstein und...

Die Höhle hinter dem Wasserfall - Sunnebach-Fall Hombrechtikon
Seit gestern Abend habe ich ein Projekt: Ich will Wasserfälle finden, hinter denen sich eine Höhle befindet. Die Höhle sollte gross genug sein, dass ich mich darin aufhalten kann, zumindest im Kauern. Ganz gut würde mir gefallen, wenn es zu dem Wasserfall keinen richtigen Weg gäbe und noch besser wäre es, wenn der Wasserfall...

My way to Work - January 2017
I bike to work every day. In this journal I will post some nature impressions, if possible every month. My way to work is 5,5 km one way. January 2017 was very cold and dark. The snow couldn't melt, it evaporated. By the lack of light the landscape seamed to be black and white.

Gefrorener Wasserfall im Sagentobel, Zürich
Heute war ich im Sagentobel und habe den gefrorenen Wasserfall fotografiert. Es war traumhaft schön! Wer sich den Wasserfall ansehen will bevor er schmilzt, findet hier eine Wegbeschreibung, denn der Wanderweg führt leider nicht mehr daran vorbei. Die unteren 4 Fotos zeigen den einfachsten Weg zum Wasserfall. Anfang des 20....

Agglo-Tour ins surrealistische Volketswil
Verteidigungsrede (Nachtrag) Der nachfolgende Bericht und die Fotos wirken auf einige Hikrs evtl. etwas absurd. Zu meiner Verteidigung muss ich sagen, dass ich Leute kenne, die nicht bei -6 Grad und Bise drei Stunden lang zwischen Uster und Volketswil durch den Nebel irren und belangloses Zeug fotografieren würden. Ja, solche...

Totholz-Wurzelhöhlen-Tour
Uetliberg: Manegg, Fallätsche, Baldern, Mittelleimbach Heute fuhr ich mit der Sihltalbahn bis Manegg und stieg die Frymannstrasse hoch zu den Burgwächtern. So nenne ich die grossen Föhren, die weiter oben in der Nähe der Burgstelle Manegg auf einem Grat stehen. Man sieht sie von weitem, wenn man mit dem Zug Richtung Sihltal...

Verzuckerte Bäume, Confi, Tee und ein schlafendes Ungeheuer
Fototour Baldern, Fallätsche, Coiffeurweg, Üetliberg Station Vorbemerkung: Ich schätze die reine Wanderzeit auf 2 Std. Ich habe nicht auf die Uhr geschaut und war den ganzen Tag kreuz und quer unterwegs. Die Schwierigkeit T2 bezieht sich auf den Coiffeurweg an einigen Stellen. Heute wollte ich Confi kaufen, denn der...
