July 16 Tuesday
Went this morning on the lake as far as Vitsnaw where we took the cars and went up the Rigi. The road is built very straight up the mountain. The view from the Rigi Kulm is splendid and I counted elevenlakes and mamma tried to count the mountain peaks but there were too man. Had dinner up there admired the view and then came down and took the boat back. There were sheep feeding on the very edge of a precipice which looked as if they would fall off but they say that they do not. Lucerne is a beautiful place and I like the lake very much.

July 18 Thursday
Took the train this morning over the Bruning Pass. Uncle Sam and John left us to go over the Rhone glacier and will meet us at Interlaken. Had a lovely ride over the pass and the cenery is beautiful. Took train as far as Brienz and there took boat on lake of Brienz to Giesbach Fall. I liked that place very much. The fall is beautiful and makes 7 cascades as it goes over. Papa bought me an alpine staff and we walked up to the upper fall. It was quite a climb and mamma went part way. In the evening saw it lighted with colored lights. It was very beautiful.
