Hiking on my birthday! 徒步行中度过我的生日！
21.06.2009 15 °C
It was a day with mixed weather, but hopefully still good enough for going on a hiking route from Täsch to Zermatt, which should offer some nice views of the famous Matterhorn.
Starting in Zermatt, we could just see a little bit of Matterhorn when the clouds cleared up.
Zermatt train station is very clean and well organized - just like most places in Switzerland.
Our baby daughter on the short train ride from Zermatt to Täsch.
At Täsch we took a taxi which took us up to Täsch-Alp, which saved us about 2 hours walking time.
Already the very first impressions of the Swiss nature were quite good.
Unspoilt and not crowded at all.
Looking back down on our starting point, Täsch-Alp.
Soon we got our first glimpse of the Matterhorn.
From here it looked even bigger than from Zermatt.
Maybe that's also partly due to the 12x zoom of our new camera.
From now on all the way Matterhorn would be ahead in our view.
Unfortunately weather was just so-so, so the Matterhorn was always partly covered by clouds.
Time for a rest.
Despite the clouds, the Matterhorn still was a great piece of rock to look at.
Later we reached our destination, Sunegga Paradise.
From there we went down to Zermatt by cable car.
In the evening we went to another typical Swiss restaurant...
...to have some more Swiss food.
After dinner we walked back along the main shopping road of Zermatt.
There are many, many hotels in Zermatt.
Back at our place we went to the kid's corner again...
... to give our daughter a chance to play some games after being out for the whole day.
This game is called: Hungry crocodile wants to eat fat hamster.
Playing lego bricks.
Isabella especially loved playing the piano!
Doesn't she look like a professional piano player?
