October snow in Züricher Oberland

A couple of weeks ago I decided to dig out my winter boots and winter jackets. Something about the cold mornings, intuition, I am not sure. Whatever the reason, last night the rain turned solid and white as I walked home from the train and this morning I woke to several inches on the ground.

After several cups of hot coffee, I headed to a small town, Greifensee, on the lake with the same name. Greifensee has a small old town and a castle and I wanted to get some photos of the town in the snow.
