Mount Titlis

My scholarship program sponsored an educational trip to Bern to discuss issues in Swiss-American relations.  It was an excellent opportunity to meet other researchers working in a number of different fields throughout Switzerland.  Following our time in Bern, we stayed in Luzern and ventured to Mount Titlis.

At 10,000ft (3238 meters), Mount Titlis is one of the highest peaks in central Switzerland.  The peak and crowning glacier are reached via gondola from Engelberg in the valley below – and the surrounding peaks are covered with snow, even in mid-July!  The mountain top has a glacier cave and the highest suspension bridge in Europe – not to mention the stunning views of the Alps in all directions.
