It was a long summer and we had both been looking forward to going to Lauterbrunnen this autumn. Not only were were going back to one of our favorite destinations, but we were able to meet up with my cousin, Jess, and her fiancee, Cheryl, as they were traveling about Italy, Switzerland, and Germany. We anxiously watched the weather for the week leading up to the trip as it wasn’t looking promising. However we had terrific luck and it only rained one night when we were there. The days weren’t perfect, but pretty enough to allow us to do hiking as Jess and Cheryl enjoyed canyoning, which I have understood to be roughly canyon river rafting sans raft. We had a great time and hope that Jess and Cheryl will be back to visit again.
