Mount Pilatus

While Grandma was here, we decided to do something tourist-y and headed to Mount Pilatus. There is a small lake, where (supposedly) Pontius Pilate is burried. They say he's still a bit crabby over his ill advised decisions so he sometimes stirs up the water on good Friday. They also say there are dragons on mount Pilatus, so take it for what it's worth.

Anway, there are three ways up Mount Pilatus. One of these is hiking, so we used the other two methods of ascension and descension: The Cog Railway and the Cable Cars. I lack good pictures of both, but they were very cool. You should come to Switzerland and see for yourself.

We saw real Alpin Horn Players

And cliff jumpers preparing to jump

And cool scenery

Daniel's favorite part was the chairs. He could have spent hours doing this:


  1. Wow! I love the scenery. Gorgeous! And Daniel is so big and cute. Time flies!

  2. I happen to be scared of heights - but it looks amazing!

  3. Yep! That's pretty much exactly what I pictured Switzerland to look like!

    Sounds like a good day was had by all.

    I'm not much on heights either, but I would hope that I would have been able to rise to the challenge...the shoes,now that might have been another issue!
