While in Interlaken we had another afternoon adventure when we went to Trummelbach Falls. In case you hadn’t heard of it, it is a glacial waterfall that is located inside of a mountain. It is listed on the “Federal Inventory of Landscapes and Landmarks of National Importance” after all.
We took the ”tunnel-lift” to the top and then hiked up and down to see the 10 waterfalls.
Taking photographs was a bit of a challenge. We were basically inside a cave and taking photos of rapidly moving water under very low-light settings (with mist covering the lens to boot) is way beyond my photography skills. So most pictures came out looking like this.
Thanks to a little bit of natural light this photo is slightly better. I don’t think any photograph can do it justice though – you completely miss out on the noise and the amazing power of water surging through the rocks. You can be sure I kept a good hold on my children, although there were plenty of guard rails.
I couldn’t figure out the best way to rotate this photo to give accurate perspective. Suffice to say it was a lot of water, moving very rapidly, into a big pit in the rock.
Thomas told us to take this photo so we would remember how scared he was. He was a little more brave than Andrew though, who would not go into the darkest caves at all.
Doesn’t Andrew look happy? We are having fun!
The theme of beautiful Swiss landscapes continued. This view reminded us of Yosemite.
The river was clouded with bits of erosion debris. It was a grey-brown color, almost like chocolate milk. Sorry, no fishing here.
This was our last adventure in Switzerland. The next day we packed up and headed back home. (And in my mind, it did seem like we were going “home” which was a good feeling.)
