From the front of our hotel here, you can see our hiking trajectory - from the building at the very top left to the one at the very top right of this photo, along the horizon of sky and rock. It took a while.

The village of Arosa down below (from the top of the Hörnli cable car) - yes, our hotel is down there (where the first photo was taken from)

We started our hike from the top of one cable car, aiming for the top of the other

Big, tall, steep mountains (see the village in the far distance down there across the valley?)

Alpine Lake (the two little white specks to the right of the lake are houses; the dark area of the lake is where it goes suddenly deep)

In German, affixed to a rock at the top of the mountain: 
"Come and see the works of God, Who is so wonderful. 
Psalm 66:5 
Praise and fame be brought to You, God; You have brought about an awesome and beautiful work of creation."
