On one of our first visits to Zurich we were able to see the Alps pretty clearly looking south across the lake. We imagined this was a pretty typical view at the time. As it turns out, it is fairly rare for the mountains to make an appearance on the horizon. There is always this haze that obscures them on the clearest of days. But every once in a while something happens and they show up. This happen just the other day. It was such an event that Chizzy commanded me to walk out to the lake to get some pictures.
