Above the clouds

The stratus was staying stubbornly at about 800m, so we took the bus to go up on the Jura mountains. 35 minutes later, we were starting our short hike to the Röti and, at only 1395m, were rewarded with 360° views, well above the sea of fog.

The Alps were clearly visible, as was the whole Jura mountain chain we had hiked through in the summer. It was much warmer than under the clouds, mild enough to picnic in shirt-sleeves and soak up the sun. We will be going back up regularly in the winter.

Au-dessus des nuages

Les stratus sont coincés à environ 800m d’altitude; nous avons donc pris le bus pour monter sur le Jura. 35 minutes plus tard, nous commencions notre montée vers le Röti. La récompense à 1395m : une vue à 360° au-dessus de la mer de brouillard.

Les Alpes étaient bien visibles ainsi que toute la chaîne du Jura que nous avions parcourue cet été. Il faisait beaucoup plus chaud qu’en ville et nous avons pique-niqué au soleil, sans veste. Nous y retournerons régulièrement durant l’hiver.
