'Crack in the Earth, near Chur, Switzerland Dec 05, 2016
Not far from Chur, Switzerland is a major thin and very deep crack in the earth developed by erosion of a small stream. The total depth is over 800 feet (thats X meters). The nice view from the top is very unusual.

There is a big pull off for parking near the crack so many can stop and take their time looking and walking down so many steps to the bottom. Returning uphill is a different task where cold water is important. Some places in the slot canyon were less than 5 feet wide. The bottom had green running water, and you can see two bridges above.

This "crack" is unique even for Switzerland. At the top of the crack is a walking tunnel and a driving tunnel.

We had a nice afternoon at the crack.

Chur in summer is near beautiful mountains with sky trams operating for mountaintop walking. (Winter skiing is big there.)
