Grindelwald

Schwarzhorn

View from Faulhorn onto Scharzhorn and Wildgärst.

The Schwarzhorn is a mountain of the Bernese Alps, located between Brienz and Grindelwald in the Bernese Oberland. With a height of 2,928 metres above sea level, it is the highest summit of the group north of the Grosse Scheidegg Pass. The Schwarzhorn is also the highest point in the municipality of Brienz.

A small glacier named Blau Gletscherli lies on the north side of the mountain.

The Schwarzhorn is regarded as one of the most stunning look-out peaks in the Bernese Oberland. Its summit can be accessed by a trail on the southern ridge.

Lake Bachalp

Deep blue, smooth as glass and divided in two by a natural dike, pretty Lake Bachalp is set in a moorland habitat of national importance, framed by the snow-covered peaks of the Jungfrau massif.

This wonderfully picturesque spot is easily accessible from Grindelwald-First – and rewards visitors with superb views of the Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn and Finsteraarhorn.

Grindelwald (Snow Bivouac IV)

Fourth and last pic of our snow bivouac adventure. Stunning night view onto the village of Grindelwald. Exposure time almost 15 minutes, shortly before the full moon rose…

Grindelwald is a village and municipality in the Interlaken-Oberhasli administrative district in the canton of Bern in Switzerland. Besides the village of Grindelwald, the municipality also includes the settlements of Alpiglen, Burglauenen, Grund, Itramen, Mühlebach, Schwendi, Tschingelberg and Wargistal. Grindelwald village is located at 1,034 m above sea level in the Bernese Alps.

The tourism industry began in Grindelwald in the late 18th century as foreigners discovered the scenic town. Pictures of the vistas were widely reprinted, quickly making the village internationally famous. In the 19th century many Englishmen came to the village to climb the alpine peaks around the valley. The Finsteraarhorn (4,274 m), the Wetterhorn (3,692 m), the Eiger (3,970 m), the Schreckhorn (4,078 m) and the Gross Fiescherhorn (4,049 m) were all climbed during the 19th century.
The Grindelwald road was built in 1860–72, and the Bernese Oberland railway reached the village in 1890, both of which transformed an arduous journey into a simple trip and allowed tourists to flood into the village. The first resort opened in 1888, there were 10 hotels in 1889, and by 1914 there were 33 in Grindelwald. A rack railway was built to Kleine Scheidegg in 1893, and it was expanded to the Jungfraujoch in 1912. Numerous ski lifts, cable cars, hiking trails and alpine huts were built in the late 19th and 20th centuries to allow tourists to explore the mountains. Today, almost the entire economy of Grindelwald is based on tourism.

Leave nothing but footprints (Snow Bivouac II)

All Rights reserved.

The second pic of the mini series of our snow bivouac adventure.

Awesome sunset on the Männlichen, Bernese Oberland, Switzerland.

Bring nothing but silence
Show nothing but grace
Seek nothing but shelter
From the great human race

Take nothing but pictures
Kill nothing but time
Leave nothing but footprints
To show you came by
