I loved Wengen so much that I spent my last night in the Alps exploring the village and it's outskirts. I walked up cobble-stone streets where old wooden houses still housed traditional Swiss mountain families and even hiked out in the forests surrounding the town. This shot was taken on the east edge of town as I hiked up from the train station. You can see the many hotels that have been built in Wengen over the past century mixed with the fields of wild flowers. While these 'streets' might be paved, the only automobiles in Wengen are golf-cart like vehicles that are mainly used by residents for work-purposes and to assist tourists not wanting to walk uphill to their hotels.
