Day 3: Engstlenalp to Meiringen
Elevation: gained 1530 meters, lost 1095 meters
Eats: bread, yogurt, cheese, honey, coffee, mystery fermented drink, melted cheese on bread, chocolate, pesto pasta, salad, chocolate
The definite highlight of today was the cheese man. He gave us a mystery fermented beverage and melted (freshly made) cheese on toasted bread. Just because. To be nice. He is pictured. With a big round of fresh cheese.
It was supposed to be a short day, but we took a wrong turn and wound up walking along a beautiful ridge. Twice as far, but gorgeous.
-an angry goat on the ridge
-2 cute Italians
– first glimpse of the Eiger
-cheeseburgers for dinner
-a walk thru Muggenstutz land (a fairy tale dwarf in children’s tales)
Tonight we are staying in Meiringen, home of meringue and the waterfall where Sherlock Holmes died.
We lost yesterday’s post, but the main point was learning the word regin (as in Ronald) which means ‘rain.’
Tomorrow is supposed to be rainy with thunder and lightning. We are heading to Gridenwald.
