So to today; Yesterdays storm had cleared the air and this morning “The Horn” showed itself properly on a glorious sunny day. Finally I can reveal the view from my room (above)!
After breakfast, I caught the train to Tasch and jumped in the Taxi Bus up to Taschalp, where I would walk part of the Europeweg to Sunegga.
A pleasant stroll, not without its “hairy height” moments. I swear I’ll never get used to it! Despite my being uncomfortable occasionally, the views more than make up for it.
I took a slight detour before the hamlet of Tufteren, on the Blumenweg, where I took some snaps of the wildflowers.
I saw the route headed up and I had no idea where it went so I back tracked, to the main route, and went on into Sunegga, busy snapping the flora; Practice makes perfect.
At Sunegga, I had a short stop for coffee, and then caught the train back into Zermatt.
In the evening, Tom and I had been joined by two new room mates, from England, Mike and Humphrey. suffice to say, we went off to the Brown Cow pub for the evening.
