Day 2 Swiss Highlights!

Start around 9…. and 4 Passes above 2000m were on the program….the skies clear for a great day ahead.
From Meiringen to Innertkirchen before the cracker of a run up the Grimselpass (2165 m). Past Lake Räterichsboden and Lake Grimsel to the top – what a dream-road!!!

Grimselpass







At the top, the small road to Lake Oberaar was closed due to road works; the 6km stretch (toll-free) is useable for 10 mins at full hour, and 10 mins every half-hour for the return. What a disappointment, the views to the Oberaar Glacier, the Finsteraarhorn (4274 m) and the Lauteraarhorn (4042 m) are magnificent from there.

Missing out this time around, we went on to Gletsch, as the clouds decided to move in a little.
