and walking along the lake of Wäggitalersee - a small valley but with mighty mountains surrounded - impressive scenery. The sky is still overcast of yesterday and yesternight rain fall - a few drops fall out of the moving the dark clouds.

At the end of the lake, it goes up to Fläschlipass I was last week, but this time going up to Schwialppass, easy ascend toward the pass. A brief stop at the pass for lunch, some bread & cheese and some sweets ("birnbrot" aka "pear bread"). Then keeping elevation toward Pragelpass, but the hiking path here is very muddy from last days raining and cows footsteps further made it muddy.

Sunday July 31, 2022: Pragelpass - Roggenstöckli - Muotathal

A good sleep, yet headache nevertheless, feeling exhausted - if I were on a longer hike trip I would insert a resting day, just for listening to the body, but I continue slow therefore for the descend ahead of me. Mild temperatures, ~20°C and south-west wind (warm), and I descend via Roggenstöckli Mittenwald & Schwändihütte, Mittlist Weid, Ober- & Unterfedli, and walk last segment on the paved street toward Stalden, a small vilage ahead of Muotathal, 13:30 which ends this hike (taking bus to Schwyz and from there the train again).

If you read or watched so far - needless to say, Switzerland has stunning nature to hike - the public transportation makes it easy to come close to the mountains, take 1- or 2-day hike trip (or longer) and after few hours you are back in civilization, and public transportation reliably available.

That's it.
