Saflischpass, 2563m; hiking-tour from Binn to Rosswald (Tour 2/4)
Day 2: After a good night and a generous breakfast in the Ofenhorn Hotel in Binn we started the next big mountain trip over the Saflischpass to Rosswald. A short walk through the typical village with nice timber houses led us to the hamlet Ze Binne.
We then crossed pasture land alive with flowers and butterflies and climbed steadily uphill.
As the weather forecast had predicted, the sunny weather changed very quickly and when we arrived at the Saflischpass we had to be wearing rainjackets.
During the hike from the pass to Rosswald the weather changed all the time.  At last we reached Rosswald. This small village looked like a "ghost-city". We couldn't seeing anybody - all houses with closed window shutters looked at us.
But in the hotel Klenenhorn we were very warmly welcomed! We stayed there with another 2 couples for the night and enjoyed a 2nd night in a hotel - which was atypical for us. (normally we prefer SAC huts)
For the other 3 tours look at: "Eggishorn"; "Mäderllicke" & "Bistinepass"
