Travel Blogs from Zermatt
Today was going to be relaxing, no excuses. We cycled into
Sion and caught a train up to the tourist center of Zermatt which is famous for
its amazing view of the Matterhorn.
The train trip was uneventful and we sat back like rich
people watching the scenery go by from air-conditioned comfort. One change of
train at Visp and two hours later we were in Zermatt.
... ht down for a 1000 meter
vertical descent. Eina. Sore knees and toes were in order and to round it all
off the path was full of stinging nettles and the temperature must have been
close to 30 degrees. Oh well, one has to do these things as well in order to
appreciate life to the full.
So at last, back to our “house on wheels” and off to our
camp where we washed away our aches and pains with a few cold ones and a Swiss “Boerie”
... with bright green sunglasses and leopard print shirts they called and chatted with everyone within their reach. One said that she had toured all of Germany and Switzerland solely on the subsistence of apple strudel.
As the afternoon wore on, we finished our wine and headed for the cog rail train that would take us up the mountain for our best views of the Matterhorn. We disembarked one stop shy of the top because Shar had seen ...
... br> village called Salvan. The building in these villages are original old and
typical Swiss chalet type. The roads are very narrow and all the buildings are
adorned with Geraniums and other flowers. Truly a very pretty sight.
From Salvan he began our descent which took us past an old
waterwheel driven mill that is still in action and then onto a very steep path
that has been paved with steps built out of the local rock. The path winds down
through a pine ...
... Zinal. After a couple of hours of sitting on the mountain in the rain, we gave it up and went back down to the Hotel de La Poste and spent much of our time working on our photos. Even the ones you have seen before are better so here they are!
