On our way again after our stop at Chateau D-Oex, we came across a scenic area where there was a Gorge and an Old Railway Bridge, well it looked dis-used, maybe it isn't. What I wanted, was a photo of the Bridge, this proved impossible! No photo of the bridge, so photo of the canyon had to suffice! There wasn't much water on one side of the bridge, but on the other side, there was a Kayaking tour group getting reading for kayaking, so there must be a lot more water on the side.
I since have discovered, you can go canyoning, hydrospeeding, canoeing/kayaking or river rafting.

En-route from Chateau-d-oex to Gruyeres.
