We were happy when we looked through the bedroom’s window and saw a sunny day! Finally! It looks like the fog and rain from the previous days are gone!
We went walking to the Rothorn‘s building (Rot means Red in German). Although it’s a modern building it is not beautiful _ probably because it is all painted red….
I don’t see a reason for painting it all red just because the name of the mountain is red… Usually the Swiss have good taste for Architecture / Design…. not in this case, I must confess.
It’s pricey to get to the top! We paid Sfr 48,00 each to go to the top of the Rothorn in summer!!! Meaning ONE single trip up and one single trip down! Not the same as when you are skiing and you go up and down the whole day, he?
The amount paid corresponds 55 USD! For one single trip? Come on!!
To go to the top you take a gondola to the middle station and from there another one to reach the top.
From the middle station we took the cable car to the top of the Rothorn.
The views from the top are quite impressive as it’s possible to see almost 1000 peaks! (Including the Sella Group in Italy where we went skiing two years ago) !
We took a lot of beautiful pictures at the top. You can see some of them on my Flickr Gallery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/34351159@N00/sets/72157627225986674/
From the top we took the cable car and stopped at the Middle Station. Before going down we went on a nice hiking / walking.
It is easier to walk when you are at the Middle Station because on the top there are a lot of stones making it more difficult to move around.
It was funny to play with the ski t-bar during summer!
Like a 5 years old ! haha
From the playground we went walking / hiking and I am glad I had my sticks!
This small lake is located at the middle part of the mountain. The water is turquoise!
During our hiking we saw several cows and the one below was the cutest of them all!
So cute! Look where this cow is staying!
The cute Swiss’s cows
It is very interesting to see and listen the Swiss cows! All of them have a bell hanging from their necks. When there are many cows together we listen like a symphony while different sounds come from each of them
Time to go back and get to the gondola and…. find a place to have lunch!!!!
Inside the gondola, going down and my Swiss bottle (bought in another trip, years ago, at Wengen)
From the gondola station we went walking along the lake and into a beautiful forest. There are a lot of squirrels there and one of them climbed my husband’s legs !!! I was “petrified” and could not take a picture!
Lunch was great! At Lenzerheide
Mine: Salmon with potatoes. Husband: Spaghetti a Carbonara
As we had lunch late in the day we didn’t have dinner.
We packed our stuff . We will leave early morning because the forecast is announcing… RAIN!!!
Bye bye Lenzerheide!
