Yesterday’s storm is in the past. Today dawned with mist swirling round the valleys and wreathing the peaks. A quick snap before breakfast.
Do click any image to see an enlargement – the quality and sharpness is vastly better.
By mid-morning it was clearing fast and so we headed back up to the top of the Felskinn cable car ride for some wonderful views of the Mischabel range, newly dusted with snow. What a magnificent sight they were.
Clouds girdled the peaks, mist rising. The view was never the same for more than a minute.
Those who follow my blog may well have seen my posts about the Dom – Switzerland’s highest mountain. From the Saas Valley it is dramatic, the peak at the centre of the mighty Mischabel ridge. The mountain is climbed from the back side accessed from the Zermatt valley. As with many mountains the two sides are entirely different. From Saas it is a huge soaring rock face, from the Zermatt valley the mountain has a gentler slope comprised mainly of snow.
