August 16, 2011 – Grindelwald


Over the weekend we went to the town of Grindelwald.  They were hosting a folk festival and we decided that it could be fun to go.  Several trains later we arrived in the town, but we still had to take a cable car up the mountain to the festival.  Let me just be upfront here, the website made it seem as if the “Festival” was a big event.  It really wasn’t.  There were a handful of dancers and a couple of tables selling things.  HOWEVER, there were awesome views of the alps and really cute cows. 

Speaking of alps, we had a great view of “The Eiger” as in "The Eiger Sanction"you know… Clint Eastwood… assassin… mountains… Clint Eastwood. 

The mountain on the Left is the Eiger.  Which is taller than the mountain on the right, no matter how much taller the one on the right looks.  I blame the clouds for that optical illusion.

I'm guessing that those barriers are not for catching tourists should the try rolling down the mountain.  Maybe they prevent snow slides?
