We mooed back and forth, squatting on a stone wall to converse with a heard of grazing cows. This would be a good way to end the run, but we weren't quite done for the day. Just a few kilometers later, we were back at the parking beside a small pool. An even better ending for the run- stripping off our gear for a quick dip. This was the beginning of true summer running.

Not far from the busy Simplon Pass, you feel surprisingly far away.

Sometimes returning to civilization is beautiful too. Arriving to the Alter Spittel before finishing the loop.

Who's more entertained, us or the gals?
