Now that we’ve been home for a week, and kind of a crazy week at that, I can finally post some more photos.
Our second weekend in Switzerland, we took a short trip from Zurich to Arth-Goldau, where we took a cogtrain to Rigi Klösterli and began our ascent to Rigi Kulm. The elevation at Klösterli is a little more than 1300 meters and the peek at Kulm is at about 1800 meters.
Here’s the view looking north from close to where we got off the train at Klösterli. In the lower right corner, you can see a portion of the tracks from the cogtrain. I believe that’s Lake Lauerz and the Kleiner Mythen (the darker peaks in the upper right) in the distance.
It was an exhausting trek; mostly because of the snow. But it was a blast and I can’t wait to do it again.
