[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 train we played Camelot JR. (Hello Kitty is a custom addition from Elisa) 
At the same time we passed by the Chillon Castle...

Our (failed) attempt at a Snowman Geohash achievement: the snow was too dry/cold/old and did not stick properly together... 
We left a marker...

Back down to Stalden-Saas 
On the way back there was some nice frosty scenery, although it was getting dark rather quickly.
