HB/UR-074 – Brandegg – 1108m – 2 Points

Another nice Friday was forecasted and I headed for my 2nd HB/UR. As I approached the region of Lucerne all fog was gone and I was greated by blue sky. Arriving at Seelisberg I tried the 1st car park mentioned further down. Unfortunately the hiking path was closed due to wood work in the forest. Soon I found my 2nd car park which shortened the walk by 1/2km and 50m in elevation. I didn’t complain 🙂 HB/UR-074 must be the easiest hill in HB/UR.
