The Matterhorn

The Matterhorn is perhaps the most famous mountain in Europe
Here the mountain is seen in the early morning sunlight

A closeup of the Matterhorn's distinctive blockly shape
The summit is 4,478 metres high

Below the Matterhorn is the resort town of Zermatt

Zermatt facing away for the Matternhorn
The entire town is one big sik resort

One of the many mountain ski lifts caught in the early morning sun
Happily the Moon decided to make an appearence

Sonya and John enjoying the view !

One last view of the Matterhorn in the midday sun
