Schilthorn Adventure

One of my first trips to Europe was exploring Switzerland with two of my best friends, R&M. They are Swiss born and took us to several fantastic locations, one being the Bernese Alps. This picture was taken from the summit as we were waiting for another cablecar to take our trip back down from the overlook to the village below .  We were very lucky that it was a clearer than normal day and the Schilthorn Eiger peak was quite visible.  I think it’s Eiger from looking at other images.  Let me know if I need corrected. 🙂

A little information about the Schilthorn from Google Wikipedia; “The Schilthorn is a 2,970 metre high summit of the Bernese Alps, overlooking the valley of Lauterbrunnen in the Swiss canton of Bern. It is the highest mountain in the range lying north of the Sefinenfurgge Pass.”

        Funny though… I wasn’t 100% positive but think it is. I had to look at a map of the mountains online to see if it was what I remembered. 🙂

  2. Love this photo, Karen! One of my favorite movies from many years ago is “The Eiger Sanction” with Clint Eastwood. Amazing to see it up close here.

      It was a little hair razing to get up there but well worth it.
