On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
I couldn’t help a selfie here, leaving Bachalpsee, with a window to Wetterhorn. Embiggen
After quite a bit of climbing, we get to a pass where we can see where we’re headed. It was also a popular launching point for paragliders. Embiggen
From the top of Faulhorn, just about the hotel/restaurant/hut (whatever you want to call it), which is out of sight to the left. In the background you can catch a glimpse of Thunersee, the lake to the west of Interlaken. Embiggen
Looking off to the right, we see a small lake, and further down, a portion of Brienzersee – the lake to the east of Interlaken. Embiggen
We had taken a dirt road up to the top of Faulhorn, but took the single track down, which was on quite a steep hillside, and at times it looked like it lead nowhere, or into the sky. Embiggen
