And… we’re back to our iPhone recaps! And this time, we have our very favorite stop to share with you. This place was absolutely magical.
We were in Adelboden two days, and our hosts were incredibly generous, making sure we enjoyed our experience with lots of Swiss chocolate, cable car rides up the mountain, and cow milking demonstrations.
^^^ it was so foggy the first day we went out, but it was still an amazing experience to be so high up that we only saw a few feet around us. there was also a ropes course at the top that we could climb for an even higher “view”
^^ the sideways rain and chilly winds left a layer of ice all down the front of me!
^^^ the rain put a damper on things at first…
^^^ …but then the sun cleared it up and the views were astounding!
^^^ and then THE COWS!!!
^^^ we even got to tour the little alpine house above where the cows are kept.. once when I visited as a child we stayed in one of these (every house on the mountain is like this!) and got to experience it for longer. but even this peak was fun.
^^^ and to complete the visit to adelboden, we hiked to a gorge where there is a maze of stairs and bridges above the rapids.. another stunning look at a different kind of nature!
And, check back later tonight for more photos of Adelboden… that we actually pulled out the real camera for!!
