Scuol, Switzerland This is another small town in the Lower Engadin Valley in the Canton of Graubünden, Switzerland. The buildings are huddled around a small platz (piazza or square), which in this case includes a fountain. Some towns have multiple squares to reduce walking distances to get water.

Guarda, Switzerland In the Engadin Region in the Canton of Graubünden Switzerland, this is a typical-looking building structure. It is identifiable by its meter-thick walls, splayed windows, arched entry doors, and sgraffito etched stucco surfaces. The towns and villages are located along the slopes that define the Inn River.

iPad Sketches Drawings Art Architect Thomas Woodman Switzerland St. Gothard Pass Swiss Alps Mountain Pass Cycling Switchback Roads
St. Gothard Pass 1 - Switzerland The switchback road which winds its way up the southern slopes of this mountain pass is what attracted me to this location. I like the man-made elements juxtaposed with the rugged natural environment. It sets up a great theme of man coexisting with nature. If you look closely you might see cyclists I placed on the hairpin turns of the switchback. What a massive effort that must be! Oh, wait, they’re descending . . . never mind.

iPad Sketches Drawings Art Architect Thomas Woodman St. Gothard Pass Switzerland Swiss Alps Mountain Pass
St. Gothard Pass 2 - Switzerland I had been through this pass on several occasions, and I found that this early-evening scene was reminiscent of many mountain passes. Its misty look results from the damp air condensing in the cooling temperatures. This hospitz offers shelter for weary travelers during the winter months when the snow depth can reach ten feet or more.
