Rachel writes: "From Zermatt you can take the Gornergrat-Monte Rose Bahn, which is a train trip to view the Matterhorn. It has 5 stops. You can stop at each of them and there are hiking trails at each. We went to the top and stopped at most of them on the way back down. The train runs every 30 minutes. It is an amazing excursion. You go from a summer mountain scene in town to deep snow at the top at the mountain. We thought we would hike more at the top but you really needed snowboots and waterproof pants. The building at the top has hotel rooms, a restaurant and a few gift shops."
In case you're wondering, the pictures here were taken in August of 2007, while I was sweltering in Italy.
