Lets switch to another scene finally! :~) I snapped this one from the train on my way to Gornergrat. I have a special feeling about this photo even though it may not look as special for all of you.

Matterhorn #8/26

It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.

I took this one during the afternoon. The funny thing is that I saw a very similar photo on a postcard down in a Zermatt shop. I guess we both intended to have a larch on the foreground :~) …

Here we have the first photograph from the cabin of the cable car. This thrilling view is available every day to everyone traveling to the Matterhorn glacier paradise.. :~)

As you can see the view of Matterhorn from this place is pretty much different than the famous ‘Swiss chocolate’ views that could be seen on the previous photos.

This photograph might give you an idea how the Gornergrat (on the right) is situated. It is also connected with Hohtälli via cable car. On the photo you can also see a little black box between the two stations – that is Stockhorn.

Surrounding Mountains #25/28

I took another ‘cabin’ photo with the peak a little bit hidden behind the hill. There is also a nice chapel as you can see on the foreground of this picture.

Matterhorn #20/26

Take only pictures; leave only footprints.
