Day 2: Gruben-Meiden up to Meidpass

Today we started at about 1,700 meters in Gruben-Meiden in Turtmantal and climbed to 2,800 meters at the Meidpass.  The first part of the hike was in larch forest, with wildflowers like the Early Purple Orchid, Orchis macula.  After alp meadow, seen under the Meidhorn peak in the third photo, vegetation ends and the last few hundred meter climb is in rock and snow fields with little vegetation.
