I love Switzerland's Lauterbrunnen Valley, which is named for its many "loud waterfalls." The loudest of these waterfalls is Trᅢᄐmmelbach, which for eons -- like God's bandsaw -- has been slowly and steadily cutting its way deeper and deeper into the mountains. I always feel the power of nature here, so sharing this with our tour groups is really a joy. Follow me with this clip for a peek at this powerful example of the wonders of nature -- so accessible in Switzerland. Where have you enjoyed the raw power of nature in your travels?
