Behind Muerren is the Schilthorn and on top of the Schilthorn is a revolving restaurant made known through, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” the James Bond movie in which George Lazenby played the lead role. Just that once.
But we had intended to go one peak below, to Birg, and from there to walk NW through a couple of valleys we’d been before. The cable car ascended (with Bond music played briefly) and soon, sad to say, we were in a thick cloud upon arrival.
We persisted and walked through a snowy tract, but tne narrow cliff face trail was vertiginous and so it was Plan B.
Plan B took us SE and down to Almendhubel. I’d done that walk the year before, only uphill that time in great heat, and this time, downhill with cool temps, it was a breeze.
Soon we were near the bottom facing a slanted pasture filled with sheep.
Before long the rains came and we were back home.
Tonight it’s chicken for some and spicy beef for others.
