Trümmelbachfälle

Trümmelbachfälle is a great place to visit when is it cloudy and rainy in the Lauterbrunnen valley. After you park and stroll to the wildflowers to the entrance you come to the ticket window. After you fork up 11 CHF each, you enter the park. In front is an inclinator (elevator) that is carved into the mountain taking you higher in elevation to see the top falls without breaking a sweat. Once high into the mountain, you get your first glimpse of the glacial runoff waterfalls that have carved their way into the mountain. The inclinator doesn't take you all the way up and some stairs need to be climbed to get to the top fall #10. It is a pretty easy but it can be wet! It is also really LOUD!. You are so close to the falls it is hard to hear each other. Look for the white arrows pointing out cool views that shouldn't be missed! The pictures we took don't do it justice, it is quite an experience! I always forget how nature can amaze me with its power unless I'm witnessing it first hand.

The sign along the road to let you know your there. Park!


Walking along the trail and gazing over the valley

Walking into the mountain. Don't hit your head! Low ceilings.

I love the addition of videos. When did you get a camcorder? Which one? I am thinking about buying a FlipHD

Finding Simplicity

Three rules of work: Out of clutter find simplicity; 
From discord find harmony; 
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
