Setting off, down in the village
On the way up

Thursday was the first proper venture into the mountains
Walking up to lake Ochinensee for a swim, this is quite a hard climb, which helps us assess the abilities of the walkers ready for the expeditions.
After a long walk up, we stopped for lunch and a dip in the alpine lake. The swim is one of the requirements of the High Adventure award
After lunch it was a shorter route down, stopping at the Rodelbahn en-route

Why do we always loose height we have to regain?
