We went through a five mile tunnel, dead straight through the rock (apparently the train driver can see the light at the end of the tunnel almost from the beginning of the passage) and the spiral tunnels - much shorter, but at the time an engineering feat. Basically the train enters the tunnel and does around a 270 degree turn and emerges up to 10 metres higher than it started. It comes out facing the wrong ...
... ski area to enjoy some views and good food, then head for the lake itself. It's a fairly easy-going day, recovering from yesterday's long hike and preparing for the start of Ean and my 5-day backpack.
