Making a point

By cats_123  
Good morning Epzers 😁... hope you all survived the rains...we watched the lightning storms over Scotland, but escaped the brunt.

Having reached the top of the Jungfrau, the clouds suddenly cleared...shows how high the Swiss are prepared to go to make tourism work...full cafe, shop and ice caves at the top but it was heaving with tourists...not the high point of the trip.

Versions shows one of the glaciers and a long range version on the way down.

Have a great day and stay safe 😁

I think I would have to be dropped by helicopter, get the shots and be airlifted away, Jeff. Smile
That's my point.

They say that if the Swiss had designed these mountains they'd be rather flatter.

The second version is an intriguing composition. But I love the raindrops in the lead!

When were up the Jungfrau the guide pointed out the "spider" a notorious part of the mountain's face which fills with snow and very treacherous to climbers. Apparently a climber's body was still hanging there waiting recovery. Quite an experience a trip up the Jungfrau.

A great trio, Jeff, do like the lead especially, with its raindrops 👍
After last night's wet weather it's been sunny here all morning, but the rain's now back... ☔

It's not often you look out of a rain-splattered window to see a mountain peak. Smile
