Word of Advice:

By JoAnne Hewett | August 14, 2005 12:38 am

If you are planning to take a telepherique/cable car to the top of a mountain, when you reach the top, be sure to check the departure time for the last car of the day. Otherwise, you must hike all the way down… Of course, this affords spectacular photo ops:

And the hike could be quite pleasant, if you had planned on it, and were not racing the imminent sunset.

Did I mention that you must hike ALL the way down?

    Very nice photos. Is that the Matterhorn (Zermatt) I see there?
