Where: Sphinx Observation tower, Bernese Alps, Switzerland
When: July 4
Distance from Fargo: 4,539 miles
Comments: The photo shows the visitor center, the Sphinx Observation tower and summit of Jungfrau Mountain, which is part of the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. Two other peaks (Monch and Eiger) form a high wall of the Alps. This is known as the "Top of Europe." We were able to go outside and walk on the snow, being careful to stay inside the avalanche barriers.
To get to the Jungfrau, we traveled from Interlaken, Switzerland by train to Kleine Scheidegg and by cogwheel train to Jungfrau. This section is in a tunnel dug through the mountain.
The elevation of the center is over 11,000 feet and the summit of the Jungfrau is 13,642 feet. Switzerland is very beautiful and quite dazzling to us who live on the flat prairie of North Dakota.
