We recently hiked from the town of Disentis up to the mountain lake, Lag Serein--a steep hike of about a 900 meter altitude gain. Disentis is in the Graubünden canton of Switzerland, where people speak Romansch (instead of Swiss German, French, or Italian). There were Romansch sayings painted on lots of the houses. If you watch this ad for the region, you can hear the large mountain goat speaking Romansch while the little goat translates into Swiss German. One of the other perks of this hike had to do with our timing--the wild mountain strawberries are just ripening!
