Tuesday, May 29 - The Swiss Alps, waterfalls and more waterfalls
Being in the Lauterbrunnen Valley is almost like stepping back in time. Most of the area is either mountainous terrain, mountain meadows, fields, or small yards with old houses or farm buildings. After breakfast, we got ready to go to ride a cable car up from the valley floor to the top of one of the nearby ridges. It didn't take long, seems like only about five minutes. We went from an altitude of 2624 in Lauterbrunnen to 4875 in the town of Grutschalp. The view below is of another of the falls which pour off the top of these very high cliffs near our hotel. The photo was taken from the ride up on the cable car.
