Outstanding! On our train ride to Gimmelwald.

Arriving at our destination at over 4500 ft called for some needed celebration...

As soon as we arrived, the snow and fog settled in for the weekend.

At the end of our trip. This picture was taken outside of the entrance to the major falls which drain the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau mountains. The falls were absolutely phenomenal.

On our way to Gimmelwald, we stopped by the tiny country of Liechtenstein. This is sunrise, believe it or not.

Easter Weekend: Lisieux, Normandy, Lourdes

Overlooking the easternmost portion of Omaha beach.... The monument in the background displays the names of the five or so hundred Americans that died in this area of the invasion. By the way, several of them received the Congressional Medal of Honor...

A few hay burners in the Normandy countryside....

St. Bernadette's perfectly incorrupt body as seen lying in state in Nevers, France several hundred kms north of Lourdes.

Our group chillaxin' at a Cafe in Lourdes.

That's why it was a cloudy day.
