Day 1: Augstbordpass and Descent

The weather was cold and raining on the first day of the hike, on the climb up from St. Niklaus/1,400 meters to the Augstbordpass/2,900 meters.  Lots of snow, slopes and rocks; footing not great.  Cold.  
Better photos from long descent into Turtmantal, through alpine meadows filled with rocks.

Too early in the season for wildflowers in the meadows--or maybe too high altogether for wildflowers.
