Along the shores of Lake Sihl it’s off to Oberiberg und to Ibergeregg (1406m).
at Ibergeregg – view to Lake Vierwaltstätter
A left-turn in Schwyz it’s up a little „Extra“: the road through the Muota Valley and via the Pragelpass (1550m) to Lake Klöntaler. A beautiful stretch of road, and very little known which is closed off on weekends due to being very narrow...there’s very little space for 2 cars at once.
After the Cappuccino-break it’s past Glarus and across the Klausenpass (1948m) to Altdorf.
An absolut MUST-DO while in the area is the spectacular lap of Sustenpass (2224m), Grimselpass (2165m) and Furkapass (2431m), no surprise, that this was next on the list for us.
Sustenpass - stoneglacier
Grimselpass – Furkapass - Rhoneglacier
Then Andermatt and back to Altdorf - then followed by a leisurly cruise around Lake Vierwaldstätter-See.
Impressions from Lake Vierwaltstätter
Via Brunnen, Vitznau, Weggis, Küssnacht and Meggen to Luzern. Along the way, Werner’s starter motor started to play up - a problem that was only finally fixed upon our return to Sonthofen.
Traffic in Luzern proved dense and hectic, time to move on.
Via Horw, Hergiswil and Alpnach to Sarnen on the shores of Lake Sarnen, a short hop to Lake Lungern, luckily meeting up with Dietmar again, the BM fixed and ready to rock again.
He’d already pitched the tent - and as agreed - a bit out of the way, being the Kingsize-snorer that he is J. At least he makes more than up for it by being the best chef around and even carries ample provisions on the BM.
Sausages and hams, honey, jam, garlic-sauce, coffee...hell, even herbs and spices of all sorts, this is a travelling kitchen. And it doesn’t stop there...add to that pots, pans and all sorts of utensils...really goes without saying, doesn’t it?
Just the honey had decided to go “walkabouts“, coating the floor of the pannier in sticky goo... The camp also turned out to be cheapest of the whole trip....as the place was „closed“ on Wednesday and the reception opens at 9am in the morning, we finished up staying the night for nothing.
2. day routing:
to be continued!
