One more day

Today is our final day in Switzerland. It is another overcast day with a steady drizzle.

We start off by taking the bus a short way up the valley to the Trümmelbach Falls. The are many many falls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley but this one is pretty unique. The falls come down through a very narrow crevice in the valley wall. The water roars down the opening through various chambers and openings. There are tunnels a walkways carved in the rock that seem like something out of The Lord of the Rings. It was very exciting.

Afterward we decided to take a tour via trains, cable car and tramway. It was all very beautiful. We even ahead a little snow.

Finally we ended the day with a great dinner at the Hotel Shuetzen, the place I stayed when I visited here 30 years ago. We then took a nice walk home enjoying the great view of the waterfalls.

  1. Lovely photos, even in the rain. The first time John and I went to Lauterbrunnen, it was socked in for days, we didn’t even know there were alpine peaks. Your photos rarely have anyone other than you, Emily, and Carolyn, is it really that unpeopled or are you just good at your setups? I am looking forward to the Paris story; I hope Emily has been working on her “bonjours”. Au revoir!

    • Semur and Lauterbrunnen were indeed quiet with few people, except when the large tour buses passed us by. Paris if course is a different story.
