Autumn Break, Travel

Last Hike Of Our Autumn Break

© Mrs. Twinklewe started off at the train station in “La Punt”

Our autumn break is coming to an end. Today we hiked for the last time and because the kids have done so well this week we decided they could cope with a tricky climb (as in height and track). We climbed 200m and the track was in some places very steep and very narrow. The way down was a lot easier with a different challenge (young bulls) and spectacular bird of prey (golden eagle).

Having arrived at the top our next challenge was to cross a cow field with extremely playful young bulls!

This young lady spent nearly all the way singing and when she wasn’t singing she was shouting: “COW PAT!”

In Zuoz the locals we passed greeted us with “Allegra” Rhaeto-Romanic for the usual swiss “Grüezi”. We walked down to the station where we took the bus (or as they call it here the “Postauto”) back to “La Punt”.

Maybe our last hike for this autumn break but definitely one of the best!
