Photographer's Note

Bus descending from Grosse Scheidegg mountain pass down to Grindelwald. Bus service on this valley is extensive, relieving hikers from climbing uphill. Or vice versa for more sporty ones.

Resort village of Grindelwald is visible down the valley. Kleine Scheidegg pass with famous Jungfraubahn and Wengeralpbahn rail connections is straight above. And the mountain in the middle is Eiger with its notorious north face. With 2 kilometres of almost vertical climb it is one of the toughest mountaineering challenges in the world and was first conquered in 1938.
