The Aare river begins in the alps and then winds its way across much of Switzerland. It is dammed just west of Bern and creates a reservoir known as the Wohlensee. A national bike route goes through Bern and along the Wohlensee so we took the part of it that was close to us.

|Notice how a bike can ride up/down this pedestrian bridge!|
|The trail continues on the road that crosses at the dam|
|Crisp, tart, and sometimes free!|
The trail home went through a large woods called Bremgartenwald. It has some beautifully mossy areas that remind me of Arthurian legends.
|Just waiting for Robin Hood and his compatriots!|
|The water from the spring is supposed to give you strength|
After the older bike ride, I then went to the Slack Line festival they were having at a nearby campground. I have never seen so many slack lines as I have here. They had at least 20 set up for the festival and here is one guy who was really good!
|He isn't falling - just bouncing from "cheek" to "cheek" on it!|
|The pretty "Schloss" and pond at Jegenstorf|
|Now you see how gorgeous it can be on a clear day!|
