Photographer's Note

After our business meeting some of us decided to make a stop to Zermatt and see the famous Matterhorn. Dominated by the unmistakable peak of the Matterhorn, at 4478 metres (14,692 ft), standing alone at the head of the valley, Zermatt is encircled by a famous ring of mountains over 4000 metres (13000 feet) high. The names of Dent Blanche (4356m), Weisshorn (4505m), Dom (4545m), Gabelhorn (4062m), Zinal-Rothorn (4221m), and Monte Rosa (4634m) continue to attract mountain lovers to the heart of one of the world's most magnificent alpine areas.

It was the highlight of our trip and well worth the train ride to the car free village. We even managed to fit in an hour hike up the trail towards the Matterhorn.
