This page contains some of our favorite pictures from our two week trip to Switzerland.

The Swiss cover their grave sites with flowers.
There was a wide variety of wildflowers in the meadows.
The trail to Kleine Scheidegg with the Eiger usually in view.

The Glacier Express from St. Moritz to Zermatt.
The Matterhorn is one of the most recognizable mountains in the world. In the top picture, a skywriter is decorating the mountain. In the bottom picture, the small white dot to the left is a hang glider. What a view!

Schwarzsee Lake and chapel.
Wildflowers only need a small foothold to grow.
Many trails had benches for the weary.
