Oh Switzerland, you are so beautiful.

Gorner Gorge, Valais, Swiss Alps, Zermatt Switzerland.

Hiking in The Alps is justifiably world famous.

The catwalks up this gorge were constructed in the 1800’s and make for quite an impressive hike for those who are not acrophobic.

This rarely photographed mountain is here too!

There are delightful wooden Swiss chalets everywhere. Zermatt’s old town was built between the 16th-18th century. I will post some photos of these incredible wooden chalets soon.

The Matterhorn is particularly lovely in the evening when the clouds move in.

After an exhilarating day hiking, it’s time to relax and have some fondue and Swiss bier!
Cheers to you from ethereal Zermatt~

  1. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Another journey that I have been on in recent weeks is as virtual bag carrier for Cindy Knoke as she travels throughout Europe. In this post she captures what I consider to be the most stunning part of Switzerland – the Alps. Have many happy memories of trips to Switzerland and if I could afford it would love to live there with a chalet in the mountains and a pad overlooking the lake in Geneva.. Ah well keep doing the lottery….great photographs as always Cindy.

  2. So, so, SO GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE Switzerland! My parents spent time learning French there before moving on as medical missionaries to French West Africa, Cameroon. They took me and my sister there as a graduation gift from high school. The villages are delightful and the country is a feast for the eyes!

  3. Ha ha ha! I actually became nervous looking at the photographs! What a really beautiful place – and that mountain peak… it is beyond words! The chalets have a storybook quality about them. 🙂

    As a kid I climbed to the top of trees that were at least two stories high. Then here about 20 years ago I was on a ladder sealing a leaky gutter and I turned around and looked at the ground that was only about five feet down and realized my tree-climbing days were over. How sad it is when we realize we’ve grown up. 😉
