A Swiss Snifter
With the use of trains, cablecars and Postbuses the Swiss Alps are accessable to all from 4 months in a pram, for those who are wheelcahir bound, and indeed I met a gentleman who was 84 years young on these trails! Meiringen is central to hundreds if not thousands of miles of waymarked trails, from steep scree slopes to a gentle contour path, from a cruise on the nearby lakes of Brienzersee and Thun, to a ridge walk at over 2250 metres with not much between you and 550 metres. Through summer snow and glacier walks to knee high meadows covered in gentians and orchids. The call of the Golden Eagle or Kite in the Gental to the swans swimming proudly with their clutch of 7 in Brienz. The complete silence of a highspeed train to the noisy cog and rack trains climbing ascents that trains shouldn't do? The gentle swinging of the cablecar as it brings you ever higher. The trickles from under the ice, the babbling streams and brooks, the roaring rivers churning beneath the bridge with no sides and a few boards, a river of 25metres in width being squeezed through a gap of one metre before continuing its roar at 25 plus metres again. The motor free towns and villages, supplies come in by helicopter, or why not experience the flight of a bird try paragliding? There's so much to do and see it's hard to fit everything in! But I'll be going back to the Hasliberg sometime hopefully soon!
