Photographer's Note

Left: One & a half hour to Faulhorn, 4 hr 15 min to Schynige Platte.
Right: 40 min to First, 50 min to Waldspitz, 2 hr 30 min to Grindelwald.
Other signs: no fishing, no camping, no dog.

One of about four high altitude shelters I came across on a hike from Schynige Platte to Grindelwald. This one at 2771 M faces Bachalpsee. I met a local photographer who was camping out here for the night. He said he was waiting to catch the reflections of the majestic mountain peaks on the lake (Bachalpsee). I saw no reflections yet maybe because it was too windy. Perhaps they would appear the next morning. In any case I stayed around here to absorb the view for about an hour before continuing on to Grindelwald via Waldspits. Total time taken was around 8 hours counting rest & photography stops against the standard hiking time of 6 hr 45 min.

For pictures taken along this trail in proper sequential order please click my theme here. I'm starting to re-organize by hiking photos according to trails taken.
