Roy Bixler's photos of Zermatt, Switzerland

Click an image to see it in full scale.

My stay in Zermatt was mostly in search of the much touted Matterhorn. However, it snowed probably 9 inches while I was there, it was mostly cloudy and I almost did not see it at all. This first set of pictures is from taking the lift as far as I could to Furst and hoping for a break in the clouds. At the time, I thought the last pictures in this set were of the Matterhorn but I soon found that they are not.

Finally, in the evening, I overheard some people talking about the Matterhorn. I looked where they were looking and finally saw it peaking out from the clouds.

A bit more

The next day again got off to a snowy start. Once again, the Matterhorn was nowhere to be seen. I got a bit of hiking in and otherwise walked about the town.
