Woooow! What a view! A lot of work has gone into this photo of @kcdeane by @jonsbert. That part of @skiarena is not served by a chair lift. You can only get there under the guidance of an experienced mountain guide. Luckily there are mountain guides these days. In the past, you would have had to enter into a pact with the devil to reach a peak or overcome an obstacle – if you believe the Devil’s Bridge legend about the nearby Schöllenen Gorge, that is. For years, the local population had tried to find ways of crossing the deep gorge until one day, out of sheer desperation, they called on the Devil to build them a bridge. Unfortunately, though, the locals didn’t hold up their end of the bargain and brought the wrath of the Devil upon themselves. In a fit of rage, the Devil seized a rock to throw at the bridge – but, just in the nick of time, an old woman carved a cross into it for protection. This led to the Devil missing his target, and the “Teufelsstein” landed near #Göschenen, where it sits to this day. The spared bridge, the #Teufelsbrücke, also still exists, spanning what is now known as the Schöllenenschlucht.
