    ... trek through the Alps. We rode the Funicular to the top and Matt needed a breakfast of substance - man oh man can the Swiss create a hearty breakfast - eggs, bacon on a giant latka. Then we were off for 10 km walk through the mountains. Its hard to capture the view we saw but some of the pictures should help. We dined on take-away pizza and I soaked in the ...

    Syd said today was the highlight of the trip so far.We took the gondola up to Matterhorn Glacier Paradis. We ascended from 1600 meters through three stops and reached 2800 meters on the first gondola. We didn't realize we needed to take a second gondola to the glacier paradis and accidentally used our ticket. We apologized profusely to the attendant and he kindly let us in through ...

    ... one of the highest viewing platform in the world at 12,333 feet. The top of the Matterhorn is 14,000 feet high! After our gawking we walked through a tunneled out glacier with some funky ice carvings and a very slow ice slide. The kids loved the chance to go tubing in July!

After refueling we hiked to a huge ...

    Today we woke up early and took an hour bus ride to a train station where then we boarded a train to Zermatt. Once we arrived in Zermatt we did some shopping and then took a special kind of train up the Matterhorn. On part of the mountain was a lake and picnic benches. It was cold and rainy but the scenery was beautiful! It was cloudy so we didn't get to see the very top of the Matterhorn but we still saw amazing sights. We all got pictures as a school with a ...
