I suppose that most people have never heard of the Bernina, and the few that have, probably associate it with sewing machines. However, in mountaineering circles in Europe, the Bernina range, or simply Die Bernina
, is better know as a wonderful area in the south east of Switzerland. Especially Piz Bernina, the highest peak, gets a lot of visitors, but apart from that, the range is a lot more quiet than the more famous areas.
From 6 to 15 August 2009, we had a wonderful time in the Bernina group
The first few days we hiked. No glacier crossings, no scrambling, just easy terrain, getting used to the altitude again. After that, our guide Hermann joined us and we started with the serious business. See the trip report
for more details, this album is just to collect all the pictures.
