That is the mountain range, not the position! Wengen is on one side of the Mannlichen range, with the Grindelwald valley on the other, and beyond that is the First range.
To get there, it is a case of taking the train to Kleine Scheidegg and changing to the Grindelwald train, which had been packed with skiers coming up, but was almost empty going down.
On the way down, I noticed a deer on the edge of the a stand of trees.
Once in Grindelwald, it is a 10 minute walk through the town to the gondelbahn. Then up and up.
The gondolas hold six, but by timing it right, I got a car to myself. Travelling is so quiet….
… and high up you cross a snowy wilderness.
From the top you look over the valley to the Mannlichen range and the Eiger. Kleine Scheidegg is also visible…..
… and you can also see the train tracks going up past the Eiger.
Grindelwald’s mountain is the Wetterhorn, which came and went in cloud as I watched.
On my way home, the cloud had cleared, and the sheer sides of the mountain were very obvious.
The North Face of the Eiger was also very clear. It is never in sun, but the light was showing up all the cracks in the rock.
The light also showed up some of the chair lifts used by skiers….
… as well as little details close to the track.
