Two women walk on the Kleine Scheidegg in Berneroberland. Hiking for experienced adventurers, as is now being warned about on the internet. Difficult! No: born and raised in Grindelwald. In the afternoon they walk southeast to Wengen, in the direction of Kleine Scheidegg. They are at Jungfraujoch at the foot of the Jungfrau, in Valais, Switzerland. There and back the total is 18.2 kilometers at over 1200 meters. I merged two recordings in the photo above. I date the recordings to around 1920. Coincidence or not, I also owned a stereophoto map of the glacier at Grindelwald, now on display in the Rijksmuseum.

Below is a selection of family photos, which provide an insight into their lives. Two couples are walking on the Scheidegg. But their elderly parents also clamber over the rocks and ice. One couple has something to celebrate, covered in flowers. It is early summer, the hay has to be harvested and during a boat trip on Lake Thun near Interlaken the two castles are photographed there. In Lauterbrunnen there is the annual village festival because of the Abtrieb. The cows with bells come in procession from the alm to go to the winter stable.
