Just a quick update: We started, where we stopped last time and as you can see, I had all of Joy's attention right from the beginning :D. She was an overly excited and awfull puller for the rest of the day!! Here we are looking back into the haze, surrounding Basel:

As it was Saturday, my husband could come with and so I did not even take my camera out of it's bag and could relax from time to time:

There were not enough hiking signs this time and those, we found, lead into the right direction, but there was no way to be seen!

Jurassic rock! The formation of the Jurassic Mountains is very old (145-199million years) and many fossiles can be found, even dinosaur footprints.

As I said: Joy really intended to train my arm muscles this time and when the path (ahead) became steaper, I finally gave up and Joy gave in, walking nicely on her gentle lead for the very first time! 

The final destination of the official first stage: The village Büren.

But Joy had only eyes for the village fountain:

Some of the inhabitants:

We were not the only one's, who had trouble finding the way that day!

As there was no public transport to take us back to where we started, we made a round trip and after having climbed the hill again, strolled back through beautiful forest:

Where is my share of the sandwich?

One final photo! I will report about the next stage, as soon as the weather does improve again - oh, you think it is still good? Have a look at the clouds: Those thin feathery stripes are always the forecast of a change:

All photos courtesy of my husband :-)).
