Postcards from Readers: Klein Matterhorn above Zermatt, Switzerland

The photographer: Marjorie Lehr of Carmichael

Behind the lens: During our vacation to Austria and Switzerland, we spent a glorious day wandering the chalets of Zermatt, Switzerland. While walking over a bridge in the village, I looked up and saw this tree-framed photo-op of the Klein Matterhorn. We earlier took the Matterhorn Express up to 12,700 feet for a closer, albeit dizzier look, through the mist and clouds. Turns out that this lucky photo from below later in the sunny day was the best shot.
