Switzerland is probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. It's definitely a place I would love to live someday. We were fortunate enough to be able to stay in Zermatt and actually see the Matterhorn while we were on our 10-day hike through the Swiss Alps. The weather in Zermatt is unpredictable and often the view of the Matterhorn is covered by clouds. When we first rolled into town we couldn't see anything. Then by some miracle we woke up the next morning and the sun was out and the view was clear. To see the Matterhorn in person was exhilarating and quite remarkable.
