Alpine Pass Route Day 5. Unterschächen to Attinghausen.

Today started where yesterday ended, with rain and low cloud. The Hotel Alpina in Unterschächen was good and most of our clothes were dry.

The walking was not that memorable, being mostly along or close to roads.
The town of Burglen was interesting, with it's claim to fame being that it was where William Tell came from. Unfortunately it was shut! I took a few photos around the church while the rest of the group searched in vain for somewhere that was open for lunch.

We carried on along the river towards our hotel in Attinghausen as the skies above cleared. The Hotel Krone where we are staying is a very friendly place with good food and beer.

I also took some photos of the castle ruins near our hotel. Nice light, nice sky.

Forecast tomorrow is bad!
