Aletsch Glacier

Saturday we woke up early and headed to the largest Glacier in Switzerland, Aletsch Glacier, a UNESCO World site. We have wanted to go for awhile but the 2 hr+ drive kept us away. It was worth the drive though. A beautiful Glacier, very different than a lot of the  Mountains we have climbed.

We took 2 Gondolas to the top of the Mountain and made it just time before all the clouds rolled in.

 

I find it amazing that even when you are high above the clouds in the Swiss Alps you can always get some Rösti and Brautwurst.

 

I love this picture of my husband and his Mom

 

 

Sliding on down. Every mountain needs a slide and most of the mountains have them. We have found the Swiss mountains to be so kid friendly. Who would have thought you can ride up in a gondola and push a stroller on top of a mountain. Pretty awesome.

 And every mountain also needs a couch …….
For when you need to take a nap

Off along the trail, hopefully we will get to show Grandma more of the Swiss Alps before she leaves.
