Our original plans were stymied by closed trails, so we first hiked over to Bachalpsee, and then back across over to Grosse Scheidegg. It was not strenuous hiking, though we were very surprised to find the trails covered in gravel, which was not enjoyable to hike on. It was wonderful to watch the Wetterhorn change in size and perspective as we hiked closer and closer to it. We arrived at Grosse Scheidegg in time for the 12:23 bus - which never showed up, and the next was not scheduled until 2 hours later! The hotel kindly called for us and found out that the next bus was at 1:23 - except other hikers waiting for the bus also called and were told that the next bus was not until 2:23. So that was all a bit confusing and everyone decided to hike down to town. I have to say, I underestimated how hard down could be - it was VERY steep - I was VERY glad for our trekking poles, but even still, my toes were jammed into the front of my boots. I should have clipped my toenails - my toes were quite bloody at the end of the day. Mid-way one group without trekking poles opted to hike the road instead of the trail - longer but less steep. Part of this downward hike involved hiking with cows.
