Today was a great day with lots of views. It never got really clear but at least the clouds stayed high. Plus we stayed high and didn’t have any major descents.
I slept great. The morning was nice and cool which was perfect for walking.
We hiked over Krinnen Pass, 1659m, which was a wooded pass. Switzerland is definitely getting softer.
An hour later we were in the village of Gsteig. Even tho it was Sunday the store was open all day. There was also a vintage bike ride going on. The bikes had to be over 30 years old.
Lots of steep climbing later we were at the Blattipass, 1900 meters. It wasn’t super clear today but we could still see almost the complete line of the Bernese Oberland, including Wetterhorn and Eiger all the way to the much closer Les Diablerets. I just love it when you can look back and see where you were hiking just a few days ago.
We found a place to camp with a view of Les Diablerets and the smidgen of Mt Blanc.
