GRAZIE MILLE SCHYNIGE PLATTE

GRAZIE MILLE SCHYNIGE PLATTE

When the clouds are hanging below 2000m a.s.l. it’s an interesting idea to climb (in a cogwheel railway) high up to 1967m a. s. l. Everything becomes dreamy like – you’re head’s in the clouds, literally.

So that was Schynige Platte today. No majestetic views I’ve heard of, nor marmots, but lot’s of tourists, families and a cute dog. I guess this is the tourist place and almost perfect place for hiking with kids and oldies, but I wasn’t as impressed as I was on Eiger Trail. I guess I’m just for more extreme, more challenges. And less tourists. Especially now when I can call myself local here, eh.

But I have to say there’s something in these dreamy landscapes still.
