Mont Pèlerin

It's been a really hectic couple of weeks, with friends of Linda coming to visit and buying a car, so I'm a little behind on my blog posts and will try to catch up (with somewhat brief posts) before we fly out to Sardinia this weekend.

A couple of weekends ago we caught the Vevey Funi (Funicular) to Mont Pèlerin above Vevey.

We were going to visit the Plein Ciel Tower located nearby, but the walk there turned out to be further than expected and on the way we got distracted by a lovely bit of forest that we went into to explore.

Finding ourselves heading downhill and reluctant to return, we continued walking down the road towards the lake.

In the end we walked all the way back to Vevey, through the vines of the Lavaux and some of the towns on the way.

The next day our calves and knees were aching from the long downhill walk but we really enjoyed ourselves and we'll try to do it again soon, maybe in Autumn when all the leaves are turning to orange and red.
