On our third and final leg of the lift up to Little Matterhorn, we had just boarded the twenty person gondola and taken off, when I spotted this view of the majestic Matterhorn. Having my camera at the ready, I stabilized my camera against the plexiglass and fired off a few shots. Until you are really up close to this magnificent mountain, you cannot even begin to feel how large it is and how small you feel before it, like tiny little ants. Clouds had just rolled in, kissing the tip of its peak. The snow peppering the mountainside, with rocks, boulders and craggy rock faces popping through, and a small lake nestled beneath made for such a beautiful moment. How could one pass that up? I for sure didn't. After taking a bunch, I put my camera aside to just bask in the beauty of the moment.
