Gruyères:

I spent half a day in the small medieval town of Gruyères after visiting Broc. Gruyère cheese is named after this town, and this cheese was being sold everywhere here. These people really like their cheese. Apparently its used in fondue also. Pretty important cheese.

I had the best views here because there was finally one day without fog!

My favorite part of the trip: walking up an 82 meter hill to see a castle, then discovering a secret mountain village on top. HOW IS THIS REAL!?

I took so many photos from on top of the hill that I struggled to choose the best ones to post..never have I seen mountains so large.

Vegetable soup and fresh bread to escape the cold for a bit.
