Jacqueline and I woke up early yesterday and picked up her sister and sister’s boyfriend on the way to the mountain. We drove about an hour and then arrived at the Alpstein mountains where we took a 10-minute funicular to the top and began our 5-hour hike. When we began, we were in and above the clouds! It was a cool (literally) feeling, and made for a couple of interesting photos.
Hiking in the Swiss Alps was definitely one of the best hikes I have been on in my life, and it was barely scratching the surface of what the mountains here in Switzerland have to offer!
