The glacier, the snow, the peaks, the clouds and the tiny speck of the moon. It is so very beautiful. The mountains are so majestic, beautiful and powerful. You feel so small in a way yet the beauty of it all is mesmerizing.
The sun has set and this is the very last light that remains for a short moment before darkness takes over and covers the snowcapped peaks.
Good night Blumisalp. Quite a special feeling to be sleeping at a height of almost 3000 meters. I did not have any trouble with the height. The last part of the hike up here was quite demanding as it was steep and the air was thinner.
I wanted to see and experience the sunrise. I had set my alarm to 5.20 but awoke by myself already at 4.55 am. It was a cold night at this altitude so I put on all the clothes I had and wrapped myself in my bed blanket before sneaking out to marvel this beautiful sunrise. This is at the crack of dawn. The very first light appearing on the horizon.
The sunrise turned out even more special to me than the sunset. I was sitting out here all alone just soaking my soul with the beauty. Feeling so lucky and blessed to be here, to be living in such a beautiful country as Switzerland is. To be able to experience and witness this moment. Just me and the mountain peaks is one of those memories that I want to treasure in my soul forever.
The mountains are so beautiful and so intimidating at the same time. They offer so much but you also need to have great respect for them and come prepared in order to do a hike like this.
The sun finally peaking up in the skyline.
Those shades of pink and blue touching the peaks. Felt so alive and almost euphoric at a moment like this.
First morning sunlight shining at the hut. Still quiet and most people sleeping as this was shortly before 6 am. The mountaineering people had already left and the hikers would yet sleep for about another 30 minutes.
Switzerland I keep falling in love with you over and over again.
