  • The Nufenen Pass formed a part of our "four Quellen road" walking tour. From the direction of Bedretto we climbed the pass. While we were approaching the pass hit the back. We were enclosed by clouds and it was cold and wet. The pass looked desolate and thereby views were taken from us. Yet we have entertained us on the pass: a pass absorbs all kinds of people, such as two English ladies on age, each in an open sports car from the beginning of the last century. A rain suit, sunglasses and hat was their equipment. The long descent towards Ulrichen we did with the mailbox and was spectacular.
