Snow in July: A visit to the Matterhorn

A few weekends ago, I had the amazing experience of visiting the Matterhorn (i.e., the mountain on the package of the Toblerone chocolate bar). It was an incredible day and I was completely overwhelmed by the beauty of this enormous mountain as well as by the village of Zermatt at the base.

While on my hike down from the Gornergrat, I came across some snow. While other people were building rocky Inukshuks, I decided to bring out the Canadian in me and built a couple of white snowman. It was a happy moment!
