Alpine Pass Route Day 3. Elm to Linthal.

Yesterday was a big day for us and jolly tiring so we decided to shorten today's walk by 4 miles by using the bus. The weather was due to close in later so this also gave us the best chance of decent weather for the high shots.

We were walking by 9.40am at 1700m. It was a steady climb from the Obererbs Ski hut to the first saddle at 11am. Good views and sunshine.

From here it was an easy downhill section to a bowl below the pass.

We were on the Richetlipass at 12.15pm. Nice light and clouds looking back. A bit hazy ahead.

Steeply downhill for a long time, some of it along the top of old glacial moraines to the valley floor.

Another couple of hours saw us in Linthal at 4.30pm. Dunkel beer on draft aided recovery! That's 3 dry days running. Forecast not good for tomorrow.
