That day we kept driving to the small valley town of Engelberg, nestled in the hills of Switzerland. The Swiss alps are quite blocky--decent mountains, really--and every valley floor is cultivated. We stayed at the Hotel Engelberg, a decent little bathroom-down-the-hall hotel. We ate dinner in the Hotel Engelberg restaurant, which was quite good.
In the morning of Saturday, July 16 2005, we hiked up from Engelberg to the Trubsee lake, which was several hundred meters of vertical, but a nice hike with incredible views. We took the tram back down, shopped at the (southern Europe-wide) COOP supermarket, ate in the room, and slept. Swizerland has amazing infrastructure--the hiking trails have tastefully spaced but useful restaurants, snack shops, tram lines, etc.
