Taminaschlucht - Hiking up and down

On one of our yearly school excursions our teacher had taken us to the famous Tamina gorge. And somehow I was under the impression that everybody in the German speaking region of Switzerland surely must have been there once. But no - Olivier had not! So I decided to complete his education and take him there on a sunny September afternoon.

Starting point: A good Swiss soldier watching over our frontiers in World War II
