Zermatt

26 Sep
We have had a fabulous time in Zermatt. Great food, unbelievable beauty, fun transportation (who can resist a train that goes to 10,000 feet?), good exercise. Here is a small fraction of the pictures we took in the past two days. Tomorrow, on to the Lauterbrunnen Valley!
This section is about our trip to the Gornergrat, reached by narrow-gauge train. Hover above any picture to see the caption, or click on any picture to start a slideshow.  
The next day we rode gondolas to Furi and Trockener Steg, then hiked around Furi. Hover above any picture to see the caption, or click on any picture to start a slideshow.
Here a few miscellaneous pictures around Zermatt.

Zermatt has left many of the old-style huts and houses.

    I do not think I’ve ever experienced the beauty captured in these photos. Seeing the hikers right in front of THE mountain is spectacular. What a journey.

      I loved seeing those guys in front of the mountain and hope we looked like that on occasion! Up next (as soon as I have a free hour; too busy drinking post-hike wine right now) is teh Jungfrau, “Top of Europe.” What a trip that is!!

    All these pictures are breath taking. Such beauty. The old style house/hut reminded me of similar places we stayed in 1965 in Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Typically a family lived there and we rented bedrooms.

      Those were interesting travel days, Carolyn! My college friend and I stayed in several places where we rented “the spare room.” Not like today’s B&Bs where the host/hostess probably does not even live on site!

        And that is where I discovered how very good warm milk is in coffee! Lattes?
