A quick trip to capture the Matterhorn - round trip from Amsterdam to Zermatt (Switzerland) - in less than 36 hours.
The train from Tasch to Zermatt, there are no cars allowed in Zermatt, apparently to ensure a clean view of the Matterhorn.
Gornergrat Bahn - altitude sickness kicks in (for me anyway) at 3100 metres.
The walk down
Swiss Carins, with the Matterhorn summit just visible above the clouds
Single file to Riffelsee
Clouds surround the summit, with Riffelsee in the foreground.
The train back to Tasch, the waiting car, and the long drive back to Amsterdam.
