On the Wine Trail yesterday we went past a Cable Car Station so this morning when Agnes said that after doing breakfast, the ironing and a couple of other ‘chores’ I could take the rest of the day off I asked her about the aforementioned Cable Car. “Oh, there’s a much nearer one with much better views,” said Agnes and she then proceeded to tell me about the Postbus to Fanas from Schiers Station and the cable car to Eggli and the restaurant high up there at Eggli and the footpath down to Schiers. How could I resist.
So I took the 1.30pm Post Auto from the station :
Fifteen minutes later boarded the Cable Car (only one passenger – please, close the door and send it back down) :
About ten minutes after that landed at Eggli :
Climbed the steps to the obligatory mountain restaurant :
Five minutes on was admiring the view from the terrace :
And the apricot tart :
And watching the hang gliders :
Before starting my descent to Schiers :
The first part of the walk is the Blumenweg [Flower Way] :
The flowers and information boards match up nicely :
Then it gets more difficult and, after the rain we had last week, distinctly muddy.
Nice to get onto a dry, tarmac road and be around civilisation after a while.
