We met Nancy, Glen, their two children, and their au pair at the Zürich HB in the morning and set off in the #13 Tram for Triemli where we started our hike up to Uetliberg. The weather was (finally!) wonderful with the sun shining brightly, so we had wonderful views of the city and the mountains as we climbed higher and higher. Despite some snow and ice on the trail at the higher elevations we made it up there in about 50 minutes.

At the top we climbed the tower (all ten of us!), enjoyed the views, had a light lunch in the self-serve area, and then took the S-10 back to the Zürich HB. The kids had a great time together, as did the adults.

After sharing some local yummy chocolates, we hugged good-bye and they caught their afternoon train back to Karlsruhe. We went home to consume cheesy leftovers and plan our next outing.

After checking the Continental website we noticed that Scott and Maureen's scheduled (but greatly delayed) flight from Zürich had landed in Newark about 11:30 pm local (Newark) time last night (Saturday night).
