First, Switzerland: Playground

Our last day in the Alps, we took a gondola up to First. We ate lunch up there and saw this cute playground. Lucky kids get to play with this scenery all around!

The gondola we came up on along with a myriad of hiking trails.

Jungfraujoch VII: Sledding

You can take a snowy walking path out to this sledding area. It has a long sled run and at the bottom you can take what appears to be an escalator back to the top!

Jungfraujoch V: The Sphinx Observatory

You can take an elevator up to the observatory observation deck for even more views. Charlie did not like the metal grate.

Next time we will get him some booties like this dog was wearing.
