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.

... the 20th fastest up this climb on Strava) but that doesn't matter. I don't have the body type of a climber and probably have no reason to love it so much. But this climb was unbelievable. This is my new favourite climb. Its 4km longer than Stelvio but way more beautiful. Its harder and way more picturesque than Tourmalet. If this road wasn't a dead end it would be way more famous. Maybe that is the beauty of it.... ************e knows about it.
