Walking From Bettmersee to Chüestall to Riederalp

Let me start today already up on the mountain. Yes we took the Schönbiel chair lift up and began our walk towards the Bettmersee.

Day 1249 – August 2nd, 2017

Day 6 Bettmeralp

We managed to photograph a few of the colourful varieties on the Alp today, I’m not sure exactly what’s what but they are pretty.

This road to nowhere, except over the edge looked cool.

The cows are on the trail

Much of the Alpine region is shared with wildlife, be that Murmeltier or sheep or cows or anything else that can live up here. Today on the walking path we crossed a group of cows.

They are wonderful animals and peaceful, just don’t get in their way… They scared me bigtime.

The sign shows the direction we need to take and the estimated time. We have around 20 minutes to the Bettmersee.

And sure enough, we could soon see the Bettmersee in front of us.

This place is in a wonderful spot, just below from the middle gondola station on the Moosfluh run. It’s a totally renovated old cow shed.
