PhotoHunt: High

Mt. Titlis is located in Switzerland and is 3,238 meters high. 

You have to take two cable cars to reach the summit.

Because it was snowing instead of the glorious Swiss Alps views, all we could see was white clouds and snow!  But that didn't stop us from taking the final chair lift to try to see the Glacier at the very top.  We convinced our poor tour director to take four of us up and so she did.  And guess what we saw . . . . White!

So what can you do at 10,000 feet high in the Swiss Alps if you can't see anything....well you can have a good old fashioned snow ball fight!

A bit of history here.  This was my second try at seeing the Swiss Alps.  My first attempt failed in 1993 because we were snowed out as well. 

But seeing the Swiss Alps remains on my Bucket list and someday I hope to return to Switzerland  again to actually see it.

  1. Hi Kathy --

    I've been to Switzerland only once but it was in the summer -- so got to see the Swiss Alps fine. :b

  2. Hi YTSL, both times I missed seeing the snow were in May so I think next time (if I am lucky) will probably best done in summer too. I think I would have a better chance with clearer weather. Lucky you to have been able to see them. I am looking forward to my 3rd try. :)

    Thanks so much for your comments. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. These are wonderful photos. I've only seen the Swiss Alps from the airplane on the way into Venice - amazing sight. Hope you make it back soon!

  4. Hi Annie, thanks so much for your comments and I'm glad you liked the photos. How cool that you saw the Swiss alps from the plane. I love looking down from the plane when passing through famous places. You probably had a better view than me. :)

    Thanks I hope to one day make it back too. Have a wonderful weekend.
