The sun returned on Tuesday this week after almost two weeks of rain. Yesterday I made my way back to Grindelwald and then up to Kleine Scheidegg. From there, you can catch the train up to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe (something I want to experience with Martin so it’s still on the to-do list). From Kleine Scheidegg I hiked down to Grund and then back up to Grindelwald, passing through Alpiglen and Brandegg.
Along the way I dodged caterpillars on the trail, found some adorable wild strawberries and came across some cows. The cows were definitely a highlight of this hike, despite the potent smells and flies. I’m going to do a separate post for them next week.
The hike took around three hours and was mostly downhill. My knees and thighs are cursing me this morning.
