Bachsee/Bachalpsee, Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

Call it what you will: the small lake above Grindelwald-First is well worth a trip. Although Jo and I felt that we’d become fairly fit, having done some walking in the U.K. whilst on holiday, we underestimated the altitude difference and so the 50 minute walk to the lake from the top of the First cablecar station had us panting for breath along the steeper sections. We can only surmise that we’re unacclimatized to the 2,500m altitude difference, but we had a great walk despite it taxing our leg muscles. A good way to celebrate Switzerland’s birthday.

If you like the photo, I’m sure you’ll like the timelapse sequences I made too: vimeo.com/13830009
