Another short stop at the saddle before descending past the Stein Glacier and some exceptional bend-carving to Innertkirchen.
Instead of taking the direct route to Meiringen, we turned left just short of town into the Reichenbach Valley and Schwarzwaldalpe / Rosenlaui.

Schwarzwaldalp



We just couldn’t miss out on the steep, wet and slippery climb to the Rosenlaui-Glacier-Gorge, the narrow path is permanently drenched by the wet fog of rushing water tumbling down from the glacier, the rock walls easily 70 to 80 Meter high.
It’s like being inside a dishwasher, what a spectacle of nature!

From here it’s finally back to Meiringen, ending a fantastic day with some drinks in cosy surrounds.
