Foggy Säntis

This Sunday I’ve hiked up on a mountain again. Different weather condition as the last time (check out the post here) but the same friend. And much more grateful that I made it home alive, haha. We hiked up to the Säntis. Kind of a very famous mountain in Switzerland. We took the root over the Schwägalp. We knew it would rain but we wanted to this hike anyway, haha. So we did. It’s about three to four hours long. Because it rained cats and dogs it took us about four hours. So rather long. I was happy I had Ovi with me, haha. That’s a very Swiss chocolate powder you drink mixed with milk. It gives you a lot of energy and is delicious too (you might have seen it on my latest Instagram pic). And I’m sorry I wasn’t able to upload a lot of pictures to this post and the ones I’ve uploaded don’t have a pretty view etc. But it was soooo rainy and windy… We even had to walk over platforms of snow from time to time. On the top of the mountain, it was very, very windy and you only had a narrow and steep path to walk on. Luckily there were robes installed you could hold on. But my fingers were so cold I could barely feel them. And it was amazingly foggy too. You just could see the things in a 30-meter radius. As we reached the Säntis Station at the Top we right away went to the Restaurant and ate something to warm us up. I think we stayed for about two hours to get warm again. Our clothes were drowning from water. Originally we wanted to walk down on the other side of the mountain. But we were still so cold so we decided to take the cable railway down. So that’s what I’ve done the last sunday, haha. What have you been up to?<3

    No, I'm not a photography student. I just take some random pictures from time to time, haha.
    It's fun getting a feedback like this. I hiked up on this mountain for four hours and just once made a little stop and shot just these pics...
    I use a very old Canon 7D.;-)
