Murren a Gimmelwald, a Piedi

Murren to Gimmelwald, on Foot

Cable Car we rode to Murren in

We decided to walk from Murren down to Gimmelwald … actually, the cable cars weren’t running anyway, so …

Partway down the trail, we saw these guys parachuting/gliding. We hung around and watched them for a while. They were riding the cable car up with their chutes, climbing up a hill … laying out their chutes, and jumping! It was fascinating to watch. They hill they took off from wasn’t directly over the valley, but they would pick up the wind and float over the valley before beginning to turn loops and spirals over the ground. It was really amazing.

The rest of the walk down was just beautiful green, with trees and snow covered mountains in the background, with rays of sunshine coming down to touch everything. Absolutely gorgeous …
