In addition to hiking mountains and attending Carnivale in Locarno we spent some time down by the water on Lake Maggiore. The water was crystal clear and reflected the snow capped mountains off in the distance perfectly. It looked pretty cold but I would love to return in the summer. People were rowing crew on the glass like lake surface while fisherman brought their catch into the city harbor. It seems unfair that one city would get the best of both worlds; a beautiful lake with palm trees beside amazing mountains that reach beyond the tree line. But besides the lake's beauty there isn't much to talk about so I'll let the photos do the rest.
