On this picture I focus on the Testa Grigia (3480m). You can see the end station of a cable car and also a few restaurants that are pretty cheap if you take into account how high you have your lunch served!
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.
I really love nature and photography and when I have a bit of luck one photo can make me happy for weeks and months. This lovely bird is pretty much the case and it has been nesting on my desktop as a wallpaper for a while..
When I am looking at this photo I still feel the light morning wind that was blowing at the time I was taking this photograph. It was half past seven AM, around -1°C and the orange sunshine was cutting the mountain’s top…
On the foreground of this picture there are two pillars of two cable cars. The first bigger cable car pillar is used for various transportation purposes. The second cable car is for transportation of ski-snowboard-freaks.
Twin peaks in the middle – on the right is the Taschorn (4491m) and on the left Dom (Dom de Mischabel – 4545m). Even though Dom is not the highest peak in Switzerland, it is the highest mountain completely in Swiss territory.
Lets have a look at my favorite Furggsattel Gletscherbahn. This six-chair started operation during 2006 and improved the Matterhorn ski area. It was early in the morning and the slope was hit by a shadow of Klein Matterhorn.
