Golden Pass Railroad through the Alps

Monday, October 5, 2009

Today was a 4 train, 6 hour scenic train route thru (part of) Switzerland and the Alps. What beautiful country! Besides the Alps at the top and the lakes and streams at the bottom, there were waterfalls in the middle, picturesque Swiss chalets, steep inclines with sharp drop offs, lots of tunnels, LOTS of cows wearing cow bells, the leaves on the trees showing off their fall colors, goats ( high on a hill) :), sheep ( but none painted), and plenty of doe and deer ( makes me want to sing). Mixed in there was just a little bit of altitude sickness I do believe. But no enough to spoil the moments. At the  end of the ride I landed in Luzern, Switzerland which I look forward to exploring tomorrow.
