It's only taken me a month, but here are some pictures from our last full day in Switzerland. If you've been following along, we decided to venture to Zermatt for our last day. Elisabeth and I stayed in the village, while Andrew, Dad and David went up the mountain.

Because these are the pictures from my camera, let's start on the train ride. It was really amazing scenery on our way up the mountain.

The journey to Zermatt takes you through an insanely  narrow valley. You basically have a cliff with the train track on one side. Then you have a river. On the other side there's a cliff with a road on that side. Hanging off the sides you might see some houses.

Okay, I exaggerate, but you get the gist.

Here's a house we saw along the way.
We saw a rock slide. It was pretty insane. I have more pictures from our way back where you can see the extent of the slide.
Poor lonely little hut at the bottom of the slide.

We arrived in the village. It was quite a bit different from what I expected. Much larger for one thing.

And then, the guys went up the mountain. I can't tell you much about these pictures. Maybe Andrew will come back and finish the blog post one day and he can explain everything that's going on here...

Here we are on the train home. You can see how close the rock slide is to the train track. It was a little unnerving.

You have to wonder how many houses/huts were under the rocks.
