The Spectacular Swiss Alps

Travel to the villages of Murren and Gimmelwald on Wednesday, June 23, allowed us to experience some of the most famous peaks of the Swiss Alps. The day was stunningly beautiful with clear blue skies and unobstructed views of the Eiger, Monk and Jungfrau and virtually countless other snowcapped pinnacles. "Breathtaking, stunning, overpowering and spectacular" were some of the oft repeated adjectives, which everyone agreed were inadequate for describing the majesty of what we were looking at. We were also treated to the amazing beauty of the boundless wildflowers that covered the hillsides around the villages. Everyone was given the opportunity to sit and contemplate "life-design" as discussed by Dr. Fawson before we descended by cable car to the valley floor.
