While we ate (a wurstel con crauti at the food cart) the skies cleared, and we saw blue sky. We returned to the hotel, and I proceeded with plan B. I walked back to the center of town and took the gondola to Mont Seuc, a 3200 vertical rise from town. There, I read my book and enjoyed what is called an Radler, which is a combination of lemon soda and draft beer. The guides had drank this on Wednesday when I went with them. It was great. The scenery was awesome, with some clouds clinging to the highest peaks. Back to the hotel for spa time, then a final incredible dinner later tonight. How lucky we are to be able to do and enjoy this.
