Photo of the Week--8/25/08

Another photo which proves a picture is worth a thousand words. In October 1999 my husband had a business meeting in Switzerland, so we tagged along for a long weekend. We spent most of our time in Lucerne, in the center of the country. It's located along Lake Lucerne and nestled among the Swiss Alps, so it's a prime tourist destination. We took a steam engine across the lake, then an incline railway (something that enchanted Boy at the time) to the top of Mt. Pilatus (7000 ft), and a cable car back down to the city. Here is the view from atop Mt. Pilatus. It wasn't a very sunny day, but you can still get a sense of the Alps' majesty, as well as the beauty of Lake Lucerne.
