It is a moment of magic as a rainbow narrowly misses hitting me as it strikes the nearby hillside. We are out on the terrace of the Landgasthof Tannler which, although a little overpriced, is a nice place to stay.

The interesting thing is that the owners of this family business are descendants of the climber Tannler. Way back in 1904 the  first ascent of the Mont Blanc on skis via the classic route , was by Ugo Mylius with Oberland guides: Tannler, Maurer and Zurfluh.

The family is very proud of this achievement  and we enjoyed great conversations about life generally and about living in the  mountains.
