                      The ALPS

These images pertain to three of the most scenic locations in the Alps.  Mt Blanc in France is Europe's tallest peak.   The Matterhorn, close by Zermatt, Switzerland, is famous of course;  but surrounding Zermatt are other even higher peaks and many glaciers.  From Grindlewald you can view the Jungfrau massif and take a train and cog railway to Europe's highest train station at over 11,000 feet altitude.  Click the three images below to see a few additional scenes in each locale.
