- MATTERHORN ZERMATT -
2018 travel sketchbook no.11
The 5 Lakes walk was incredible with the beautiful reflection of the snowy mountains around the lakes (including the Matterhorn) in the water .. fun fact did you know that the illustration on a Toblerone is the tip of the Matterhorn? 😱
The snow in Zermatt, a small village at the foot of the famous Matterhorn in Switzerland, has vanished. The hills green again, are covered with beautiful alpine flowers and the animals have woke up from the long winter sleep. In summer the mountains are mainly populated by marmots: they sunbathe on a hot rock, play with their little ones and entertain the mountains with their loud whistles.
Every week Zermatt's running community meets on the steps of the church to share an evening on the trails. ---~~~---
We are planning to run a local introductory workshop to trail running in the next few weeks. Who would be interested to come along and get involved?
