First though, here are Lindsey and Darrell making faces on the train from Zurich (where Lindsey flew in) to Bern.

Today we are all up a little after 5 am (not normal for Lindsey, so we get to give credit to jet lag) and so we caught the 7 am train to the mountains. We were some of the first tourists there and actually ended up having one of those Swiss clockwork days - where there was always a seat for us, we didn't have to wait in any lines, and everything went smoothly!
Step 1 was a gondola ride up the east side of the valley from Grindewald to a place called First.

After a well-deserved beer, we climbed up a little past the restaurant to the peak and there was an amazing view of course!

|Pixelated, but you get the idea!|
Step 4 - we got on these scooter-bikes called trottibikes and cruised down the mountain. These were REALLY fun!
