Rain, trains, and automobiles

Headed to the next mountain adventure, Zermatt. This was a big day for transport. First, we drove to Kandersteg to catch the auto train through a tunnel to get to the south side of the mountains. This is also the way to Italy.

On the other side, we drive to Visp then Tasch – where cars can go no further. We park in the garage, and take the train for a 12 minute ride to Zermatt.

Zermatt is the base camp for the Matterhorn. It’s a rainy day, with fog blocking views of the famous mountain. Not much to do except eat. But finding a place for dinner was no easy task. It’s in between seasons, so lots of restaurants are closed until the end of June. We find an Italian place in the center of town, which turns out to be very good.
