Hiking is an enduring sport, which rewards me exponentially more than the efforts I make. Reaching the top of a mountain and admiring endless stillness and beauty, blisses me out.
“When you set out for Ithaca, ask that your way be long, full of adventure, full of instruction.” –Cavafy
This photo was taken during a hike which started at the village of Grindelwald, located at 1,034 m (3,392 ft) above sea in the Bernese Alps. From there we reached First at 2,166 m (7,106 ft).
The village is surrounded by the mountains of the Faulhorn, Schwarzhorn, Wellborn, Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn, Lauteraarhorn, Agassizhorn, Fiescherhorn, Mönch, Eiger, Lauberhorn and Mannlichen. You are looking at some of them.
