07/24 - Tamina Canyon

It's said to be a nice and sunny day... so I made some plans for another trip... nothing complicated... it's planned to be a walk of 4 to 5 hours.

I started close to the main station in Bad Ragaz. The way led straight deeper and deeper into the valley... and after a nice walk I reached Alt Bad Pfäfers, the place which is in front of the last part of the canyon with the thermal spring.

Impressive rocks on both sides... and the way goes on... you can feel that the air is getting warmer as effect of the thermal spring...

After leaving the canyon I'd to walk uphill to cross the canyon over some kinda natural bridge and the way brought me then to Pfäfers where you can see the huge church which is very characteristic for that village.

Last picture but not the end of the trip

I was about 45 minutes away from my car when my trip came to a sudden end. I slipped, twisted my left foot, fell over and broke both bones of my lower leg. Luckily I wore some good shoes, due to this something worse was avoided.

I ended up - after a flight with a REGA helicopter - in the Kantonsspital Graubünden in Chur where I'd to stay until Sunday.
