Last Day Hike
Our last day hike in the Saastal was a gloriously sunny day and the hike we had chosen - a high altitude hike from Kreuzboden to Saas Almagel had memorable views - perfect choice for our last day here. We started from high above Saas Grund at Kreuzboden (reached by cable-car of course) and led over the mountain pastures of Morgstein and Malliga and on over a paved track to a wonderful scenic view. The beginning of the hike followed the alpine flower path. Many alpines can be enjoyed along the route and several boards displayed the flower nearby and information about their flowering season etc... These blue alpines were such a vivid colour - should have paid more attention to the info board though :-S
Further on this high level path to Almagel we had wonderful views of the Mattmark Dam - much clearer than when we were closer up during our visit there earlier in the week. It was lovely to have a better view of it.
Kreuzboden - Gspon V
Next the path leads through the wonderful countryside to the Siwiboden, through woods of larches and mountain pastures - a really pleasant part of the walk and the coolness of the shade is great in the heat and especially when you have been walking on exposed paths for a while. Loved these tree roots encroaching on the path too.
