Mannlibode with Four-Paw Drive

The upper section of the Rhone river valley, known as Obergoms, offers countless hiking options. The Mannlibode loop from the town of Gluringen is scenic but strenuous; four-paw drive is highly recommended.

Do you see me in the photo below, making my way up the mountain with Mom?

We walked all the way up from the valley floor. Can you see how far down it is? Over 3700 vertical feet (1100 vertical meters)! I am mighty!

There is something so satisfying about looking down to where you've been -- and where you are going again. It makes me feel as if there might be continuity in the life of a sausage.

There are many avalanche barriers on the mountainside, and we got to walk right in between them.

And here I am, making my way down the mountain. Do you know what I'm thinking about?

(Hint: kibble.)


  1. My goodness, you is brave hiking such terrain...think I'll stick t my yard...hehehehe!

  2. What great pictures and such a place to hike! You must have had great fun.

  3. After a hike like that food would be number one on my list too...I've never seen mountains like that or avalanche barriers...What a great place to hike you have

  4. A waswolf that was bad to the bone. Can you see your home from way up there at 3700 vertical feet. I would truly like to hike with you, looking down at the valley must be really cool.

    WOW those are some GORGEOUS pictures.

  6. Tootsie, you are mighty indeed. And those Autumn colours in the mountains just beautiful.
    How fortunate there were no avalanches that day. Phew.
    Toodle pip!

  7. Tootsie you are a lucky lady to be able to go for walks in such wonderful places.
    I wonder how the avalanche barriers work?
    Is it nearly lunchtime?

  8. Woof! That place is amazing! We would love to be able to hike in a place so gorgeous! Okay, so only Mom and Dad would care about the beauty. We'd care about other things, like the smells, searching for critters, and of course finding some kind of foodables.

  9. You are a very brave doggy to hike up that big mountain, Tootsie!

  10. Your are an amazing hiker. Do you feel the difference in the oxygen up there?

    You are mighty indeed, Tootsie! And I'm sure the kibble was top of mind at the bottom of the mountain--you must have worked up quite an appetite. I'm sure the burrowing after the meal was most satisfying, too.

  16. Wow! You ARE a mighty dog. You earned a mighty big meal at the bottom!

  17. Oh my I would be afraid to slip!! By what I see you guys aren't afraid of heights!!
