Photographer's Note

Picture taken along the trail from Schynige Platte in the direction of Faulhorn, Backalpssee, and First. The view along this trail is one of the finest in all the Alps, with the ice-crested wall of the Bernese Alps spread out for your enjoyment. From left to right your eyes could feast upon a grand collection of mountains such as the Wellhorn, Wetterhorn, Bärglistock, Schreckhorn, Lauteraar-horn, Finsteraarhorn, Fiescherhorn, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, Ebnefluh, Mittaghorn, Grosshorn, Breithorn, Tschingelhorn, Gspaltenhorn, Blüem-lisalp and Doldenhorn ... except for the iconic threesome it's hard to know which is which. Glaciers and snowfields glisten among the peaks. The "horn" here is Loucherhorn looking south. Practically every step of the way you will see a constantly evolving panorama of bewitching mountain splendor, exquisite mountain lakes, waterfalls, meandering river, meadows, and even marmots running about on the grass. The hike from Schynige Platte to Grindelwald took me about ten hours I think. It could be done in eight hour but I took my time to absorb the view.
