Travel to Zermatt

We spent a long enjoyable day today in trains traveling to Zermatt and looking forward to our first real look at  the REAL Matterhorn!

It was cold and snowing when our morning started.  Luckily,  by the time we arrived there was nothing but sunshine.

Zermatt is an interesting place.  As expected, there are plenty of skiers wandering town at the end of the day, but there are also plenty of mountaineering types here thinking about an assault on the Matterhorn.  Take those two groups and add in a large dose of international tourists and you end up with a very interesting group of people.
