May 29: departure from Zernez
Roll out! Time to bid "a revair" to Zernez and get started on another looong southwestward ride.
The train left before 8AM and I wanted no more close calls, so I got up before 6. At that point, the twilight was still deep.
Hmm, looking a mite portentous up there.
A radiance of morning crepusculars.
A cool morning as I set out for the station.
A last look at the extensive Bär & Post complex.
A last look at the central square. Or, the sky above the central square, mostly.
Good morning, San Antonius.
A nice, rather Art Nouveau sgraffito corner.
Arrival at the station with plenty of time to spare.
Sunrise proceeding down the mountain.
Downvalley, Piz Linard was still bewölkt.
A scant 15 minutes later, the sun had arrived and the train was arriving.
A sunny look up the Spöl River valley to the southeast as we departed.
See ya, Zernez.
At no point did the clouds cease to be consummately alpine.
Morning riparian cows.
I rode the bicycle car to Sagliains. It was capacious.
At least for a moment, Piz Linard cleared.
A cute fountain in front of the Susch nursery.
So long, Susch.
After a switch of trains at Sagliains, a last glimpse of the Engadin, then back into the Vereina Tunnel — on purpose this time — to head back to Klosters.
