Thanks for that info, didn't know there was a museum.
Bummer about the Oberaar road....but as you said, there's always next time.

Now it's direction west in the Wallis to Leuk or Leukerbad. During the day more and more watery clouds were appearing in the sky. So it started to rain with no big surprise.
It was late afternoon so the main road in the valley was packed and I left it.
That was a lucky move because otherwise I wouldn't have come across the Fechilju gorge.
The old bridge is awesome. Build from the stones around makes a good disguise.



But man this is really a narrow and deep gorge. Standing on the old bridge I was thinking of the man, who build it in former times. Good skills!









Daylilght is now fading, so off to Leukerbad for the hotel.

Yes, only thing missing is a bike with back lights on driving away.
