​VA1 Day 6 –  – August 20, 2017

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.

Dinner view

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.

    It must have been cold outside since you were dressed warmly inside. Great find for a better night’s rest.
