[edit] Expedition

We were a bit late so we cycled to the train station which gave us a few spare minutes to get some food.

We took the train to Visp, then another train to Stalden-Saas, and finally the cableway to Staldenried. This brought us about 250 m from the hash, and we easily covered the remaining distance walking to the side of the road.

We reached the exact coordinates at 15:45 exactly as planned. We did not really think someone would join us but we stayed there until 16:05 nevertheless, trying to build a snowman, taking a few pictures and drawing a marker in the snow.

Then we went back to the cableway. While going down Elisa spotted a children playground near the train station, so we spent some time there while awaiting the train.

On the way back there was some nice frosty scenery, although it was getting dark rather quickly.
