The phone froze so we couldn't take any more photos until it warmed up again. We visited the Lindt chocolate shop and had a beautiful lunch of pumpkin soup in the restaurant. The trip down the mountain was spectacular. It is still on 3 degrees and it is ...

The view from the helicopter ride was great though. And Woody pointed out a few places for me. After about 4mins in the air, the pilot gave the signal and ...
