On Saturday we finally made the trek to see the Matterhorn. No cars are allowed in Zermatt so we took the train from Zürich to Zermatt. (3 hour train ride)
*Jason took the above picture (5 shots) and stitched them together. It was breath taking on top.
The Matterhorn is 14,692 feet, one of the highest peaks in Switzerland. The highest peak in Switzerland is the Dufourspitze at 15,203 ft.
At the top of Gornergrat you get the best view of the Matterhorn.
The train stop at Gornergrat.
Trying to figure out where to go next. We are going to have to come back for a ski holiday because the runs looked amazing.

The day wouldn’t be complete unless someone fell asleep. I must say it was a long day. We rode the train down from Zuerich which was about 3 hours. Thankfully the sky was blue and the views were beautiful while we were there.
