Brüsti to the Trübsee, 1796m
Day total: 27 km
VA1 total: 120.5 km
45 minutes into the day we got to the place I wish we stayed last night. An “alp” is a farm and many have guest accommodations. Alp Grat at 1820m was so cute and friendly. We stopped to buy some cheese and yogurt. The breakfast the guests were eating looked delicious.
It was foggy all the way up Surenenpass (2291m). The clouds would part some to show us glimpses of what we were missing. The mountain Titlis (3238 meters) was out there somewhere.
On the way up
On the way down we stopped at Alphütte Blackenalp for coffee and bought cheese at Berggasthaus Stäfeli cheese. They had the most unique chicken coop.
Huber is a common name in Switzerland and Germany
The bottom was the village of Engelberg which has a huge monestery, a great bakery and a big grocery store.
The next pass is up beyond the monestery
Almost to the top of the tram. It was another sweat fest hiking up.
We planned to camp somewhere near the top of the tram. It was really cold up there. WhIle looking for a good camp spot we found this unlocked church.
The stained glass seemed to welcome us….
Notice the green backpack on the hiker
It was much warmer inside than outside
We are definitely leaving a donation.
