Absolutely perfect weather.

Train from Spiez to Lauterbrunnen. Walked along the road thru stunning valley. High, sheer cliffs, myriad of cascades, farms. Sky cloudless.

Entered Trummelbach Falls which pours through an incredible gorge in the cliffs. We took the lift up, then walked through a series of view points. Beautiful and impressive.

Hiked up valley to Stechelberg, where we had ice cream. Walked to Stilthorn tram and took cable car to Murren: a lovely resort perched on a shelf in the Alps.

Train then fincular to Lauterbrunnen. Delicious rosti at hotel. Surrounded by local hikers, mostly men in their 70s, in lederhosen, carrying crooks as walking sticks. (They pass us on the trail all the time.)
