The Matterhorn

The Matterhorn is a mountain in the Pennine Alps on the border between Switzerland and Italy.  Its summit is 14,692 feet high, making it one of the highest peaks in the Alps. I had the wonderful opportunity to climb this mountain in the summer of 2013. Click on the links below to read my thoughts and steps as I prepared for the momentous occasion.
