Moving Beyond Interlaken...

We had spent the last 6 full days based in Interlaken exploring places like Lauterbrunnen Valley, Jungfraujoch, Bern, Meiringen, and even Zermatt. Our latest long day excursion to Zermatt was to try to see the iconic Matterhorn. Unfortunately, the mountain only showed a fraction of itself, and the web cam history on Zermatt's website seemed to indicate that it had been that way for 7 straight days and counting.

Oh well, that's life. But it certainly beat the rainy weather in the Bernese Oberland area, and I thought we maximized our chances of seeing the Matterhorn. It just wasn't meant to be.

Today, we're finally leaving Interlaken and bound for Lucerne (or Luzern). This will be the 2nd to last accommodation we'll be staying at before ending it off in Zurich. I hope my bum ankle will last (there is a 4-hour return hike in there). We'll just have to deal when the situation arises...
