Les Breuleux to Tramelan (Part II)

The photos in this post were taken from the forest near La Chaux-de-Breuleux until near La Pied d’or. We started our walk in Les Breuleux and continued on until Tramelan as I wrote in my last post.

We found this drawer with a riddle inside during one of our walks last summer.  I asked the girls if they remembered it and they did.  Both girls searched along the trail looking for it.  When my five year saw it she ran straight over and grabbed the handle to open the drawer for the first time in over a year.  Not much had changed inside.  

The riddle was still there.  

For my children, it is like magic to find a drawer in a fallen tree in the middle of the forest.   This forest seems magical even without the drawer.  

My four year old had to open the drawer, too.  But, she found It wasn’t so easy.  She pulled hard with her entire body until the drawer gave up and opened.

The tree stump with the drawer inside.   I love Swiss humor and creativity.

Walking through a part of the forest that was completely enclosed.

Next, we had to climb a little hill that was harder than it looked.  Even the children complained that their legs hurt when they are usually immune to the pains I feel.  Thankfully, it wasn’t too far up.

Once we reached the top we were rewarded for our effort.  The view was wonderful.  Here you can see Les Breuleux in the back which is where we started our walk.  

Above is La Chaux-de-Breuleux which we had walked through on our way to the forest.

A sign in German, French and English – “Please close the fence”.

In this part of the forest there were many mushrooms.  The one above was almost as big as my hand and was growing on the side of a fallen tree.

These two mushrooms were on the forest floor.

Entrance to a pasture for cows and horses in the forest.

A farm that we passed (See it on Google maps).

We walked from the farm to Les Reussilles where we bought croissants and rested before going on to Tramelan.  

We walked from Les Reussilles to Tramelan back in June.  Sunday, it was only a small part of the walk that we took.

Next, I will take you from just near Le Pied d’or until Tramelan.

    Is it just me or is that drawer the COOLEST thing ever? I love it!

    Michelle,

    It is the coolest thing…we see small mushrooms made out of tree trunks in surprising places as well. There is always a treasure to be found in the Jura.

    I loved the tree with the drawer. That is a cute idea. I don’t think I could walk that far. I would need a wagon. lol
    I can’t believe you all don’t get lost.
    Love you and miss you all.

    Mom,
    I don’t think you could walk that far…right away. But, after a summer with us I am sure you could! :)

    Caffienated Cowgirl,
    I would love to have a drawer like that in my house! Well, maybe not so big.
