Claudia and I took a hike up the Surenen valley on Sunday. This is the main valley that continues past Engelberg, quickly becoming deeply entrenched amongst towering glaciated mountain walls, eventually culminating in the massively broad cloverleaf basin of Blacken.
You can see an entirely different view of Schlossberg from higher up here.
Here’s a panoramic view of the west side of Blacken, as seen from a small chapel in the center of the basin where we spent an hour or so eating lunch and relaxing in the sun. Titlis is peeking out at the far left.

What exactly is shoeshoeing? Looks awesome! We miss you Jack! The San Juans miss you! Come home soon……
It’s this horrible method of walking on snow that involves actually walking downhill!
I’ll be home at the end of April! Hang in there! 🙂
….Wine and cheese with a lovely girl and a glowing sunset over the Swiss Alps. Life is good!…
This is so good, dear Jack!!!!
And what is relaxing? 🙂 Just wondering, do you guys put on those little Euro tanning goggles and sprawl out in the sun?
