    Cheese and Swiss Mountains

    May 27 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Today we left Geneva and headed to Interlarken. We are staying high up the valley at Stechelberg. We did stop at Guere on the way, the home of the famous Swiss cheese. The village of Guyere sits high on a hill, has its own castle and is attacked daily by a mass of buses and tourists. We then drove to Interlarken and bought groceries and continued to Lauterbrunnen and finally found our quaint Swiss chalet high up in the valley. Its the oldest chalet - hotel over 110 years old. The weather was becoming overcast and cooler with rain forecast for tomorrow so we took the opportunity to walk along the fields wore out our cameras. Every corner you turn is a photo! The girls made a nice shepherds pie tonight. The Alpendorf B&B is where we stayed. The next day we walked through the Trummelbach cavern which are ten underground falls. 20,000 litres a second! Water from surrounding mountains supply this natural attraction.Read more

    Downhill...downhill is better!

    July 26 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 63 °F

    Tolkien walked to the back of this valley at the age of 19. Coming around the corner to this view, it is not hard to imagine how these waterfalls at the end of the valley inspired the Elven kingdom. Just magical!

    Don't believe the estimated hiking time!

    July 26 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

    Last night violent thunderstorms struck in the valley in the dark of night sending rain and hail but little relief from the heat. But this morning, the air was crisp and clear, we we headed towards a waterfall that looms far in the distance in view from our home. A bus from our home took us to the end of the valley and then we hiked for, well, forever, always telling ourselves “just one more bend.” Two hours later we made an executive decision to turn around. Here is the start of our day.Read more

    Stechelburg

    June 19, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 57 °F

    This morning we had several options, most of which included going way up into the hills via a gondola moving on cables... No, thank you!! Neither of us were inclined to torture ourselves. We made our way to breakfast at 9:30, then decided to walk on a trail to Lauterbrunnen.

    Nice evening in Stechelberg

    June 19, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    Had some fun in the evening with an Alpenhorn demonstration. We all got to try it, and I did better than I thought I would.
    We had dinner all together after. The dining room had lots of flies. One thing we never saw in Europe were screens on windows. It was only a problem at this hotel. They said it was because of all the cows in the area. It was a minor annoyance to me and didn't detract for the incredible beauty of the area.Read more
