Saturday Hike

This time Jan came along. We took the train to Einsiedeln and hiked along the "Schwyzer Höhenweg" to Schwyz following a long ridge. We walked for 32km, 1300hm up and 1700hm down. Tracked with a present I got from google, a brand sparkling new Nexus S. We walked from 10:00 to around 18:20 with two breaks. We spent the last couple of hours in a pouring rain and thunderstorm so we took to roads instead of following the torrential creek that used to be our trail. All in all it was a nice trip.
