Tim Carr packed a backpack and his Nikon camera, mounted his BMW motorcycle, and set out to experience the breathtaking landscapes of the Swiss Alps. While living in Zurich, Tim and his wife, Daneille, often rode the winding highways that cling to the mountainsides of Appenzellerland, Glarnerland, Graubünden, Ticino, and the Berner Oberland. Leaving the bike at the base of a mountain, they would take a gondola to the summit, and find lodging in a modest Swiss Berggasthaus (mountain guest house). From there, they hiked the trails which lead to peaks, valleys, and glacial lakes accessible only to those willing to make the journey on foot.
Tim captured these journeys so that he would remember and we could experience the beauty of the Swiss countryside – the brilliance of these hidden Alpine treasures.
