Last Friday was a Swiss national holiday, Confederation Day, and we took the opportunity to meet up with new friends and go for a hike in the Bernese Middle Land. It was cool and foggy in the mountains, but there were many other folks on the train, along with these contented cows.
Adam and I made a goal at the beginning of summer that we would take more trips like this throughout the warmer months, but unfortunately we haven’t made good on that promise to ourselves. Between poor weather, fun visitors and general intrusions by Life, this was one of our first real hikes of the season.
I want to say that I hope we’ll get out on more hikes this year but I honestly don’t know if it will happen. We’ve got a couple weekends at home in the States in August and will be away for much of September on our honeymoon, the two months in which good weather can reliably be counted on. What luck!
