Our first morning in the area, we headed up two expensive cable cars to the highest elevation around, to get the world class view and indulge ourselves with the expensive all-you-can eat breakfast at the revolving restaurant overlooking it all (that had been in a James Bond movie). The weather had said it would be clear, but our experience was otherwise. Maybe we shouldn’t have headed up anyway, but we thought it would clear, which it did not. The first couple of pictures are from google images of what we should have seen; then you can see what we saw: it was all socked in with clouds. This was all a bit frustrating for me, since I’d waited so long to be there, and this was the low point of the whole trip.
If lack of visibility one morning was the worst we had, I could deal with it, and we changed our hiking plans from the higher elevation near Birg, to the meadows near Allmendhuel, above Mürren. And then we had a lovely time, cavorting with cows, exalting in flowers, admiring wood piles.
