The Canyon at Alta

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Mon, 06/27/2022 - 12:57

Since our Mustang Mach-E had a defect and had to go to the workshop in Alta, we took the opportunity to explore the well-known Alta Canyon.

At the end of May there was still a lot of snow, but the stony plateaus had already melted and so there were wonderful views from the higher altitudes.

However, we were denied a view of the gorge, the fields of snow to be crossed were still too big and a cross-country passage was correspondingly dangerous - who knows what crevices and cracks are hidden under the smooth snow surfaces?

A tour of Leuven offers many surprises - small as well as big. Of course, the town hall on the Great Market is impressive and is one of the most beautiful late Gothic buildings in Europe. It is decorated with hundreds of figures depicting biblical scenes as well as scholars and important figures in Louvain's history. It was built from 1439 to 1468 and stands directly opposite the St. Peter's Church.
