Switzerland, Oct. 2010

I had to be in Switzerland to work on the spring water deal with Russell, so Mik and Paula came along and we took advantage of the trip to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary (tomorrow... woo hoo!). Here are a few of the shots so far. I got a new camera for Father's Day from Mik and I've about worn it out this past week:-) Here you go. Enjoy!

A surprise visit from a couple and their sheep.

The largest glacier in the Alps... the Aletsch Glacier. 17 Miles long!

On the train to Zermatt.... 

My first shot of Matterhorn, the most recognizable mountain in the world. An amazing sight from our hotel window.

Mik and Galen downtown Zermatt on 10/10/10... with the Matterhorn in the background.

I love this window. Typical.

What a location! Sheep, an old stone barn and the Matterhorn... I can't even imagine how many photos have been taken at this location on the walking trail. I found it magical. 

Mom and triplets.... 

Bad boy stares me and Russell down:-)

The Matterhorn this morning about 9:00 a.m.
