Autumn Break, Travel

“Muottas Muragl” Mountain Hike

Today we took the cable car from “Punt Muragl” 1738m to “Muottas Muragl” 2456m. At the top the kids went crazy because of the snow (only a sprinkling). All three of them can’t wait to get skiing again. But I hope we have to wait a little longer.

Our trail, the “Panoramaweg” went along the side of this mountain, you can just make it out at the bottom of the snow line.

Of course we needed a break now and again to for a drink and a snack.

But they can never sit still for long.

This alp hut helped reload our sugar levels with their homemade rhubarb cake.

And surprise, surprise the kids nearly skipped down mountain.

(a little bit of sugar tends to go a long way with our lot)

The trail now lead us back under the tree line.

The last bit of the trail lead us down to the village of Pontresina where we took the bus back to our starting point.

On the way home I thought that maybe the youngest two might fall asleep in the car. But no luck, all three decided that they wanted to go to the playground as soon as we got home. Actually we had to drop them off at the playground so that they didn’t have to waste any time unpacking their stuff.
I’m now enjoying a quiet half hour writing this post with a snoring dog next to me.
