Through a Swiss Window

Jungfraujoch is a saddle - an area of lower ground - between some pretty impressive mountains in Switzerland.  It sits about about 3460 m above sea level.  Luckily you can get there by train!

About a forty minute walk from the train station is a mountain hut, that is used by climbers as a base.  It has a cafe where I drank some of the best hot chocolate and cold water I have ever had!

These are some things I saw from the windows in the hut.




You can find more skies from around the world at Sky Watch Friday.  SM

When I was 29 (just a few years back!) I went to Switzerland and visited with my mother's cousin who was in her 70's. She took me to the Gornergrat (sp?), the base camp for the Matterhorn climbs. We went by train, and hiked down from there to the Zermatt below (yes...she was in her 70's and I was 29). While she was kicking my butt hiking down, she told me how her father wouldn't let her climb the Matterhorn, but he did finally let her climb the Jungfrau!
