Shelia's parents are now back in the US. We took one last trip to Switzerland so they could see the Alps. Here are a few shots from Grindelwald, Interlaken, and then Basel.

The Eiger.



What a great place to sail!



In fact its so great there seemed to be a constant flow of sails...



...all landing safely.



And finally, on theway home,a stop off in Basel.



That's all the traveling we're doing for a while. It was a lotof fun and I hope you enjoyed the pictures.

I did, and I'm sure everyone else did/will do too. Me and my wife just went through our accounts from our holiday trip, and even though we stayed within budget we're also done with travelling for a while.:-)

Thanks for sharing, looking forwards to more.

Guess it is back to watching the travel chanel for me. I enjoyed the pictures of your travels very much!

The sailing looks like quite a thrill, even though I'd be happier watching it from the ground! I like image # 2--looks like a flock of birds in the sky.

Wonderful shots Glenn! I enjoyed these and all the others you have posted from your vacation.

#3 looks like an air traffic control nightmare. What or who keeps them from near misses, or worse?

Ronny, Kjell, Jay, Jim, Roy, Rodney and Patty, thank you for all your generous comments. Too bad we are all so far apart. It would be a lot of fun to actually get together and do shoot!

Thanks for taking me down memory lane. Quite a few years ago I remember taking a train up the Jungfrau (think that's what it was) and visiting a cave that was carved into the ice. Was that in Interlaken (that's what comes to mind, but it was a trip when I was growing up so I might have that wrong). I wonder if its still there. That was one of the most impressive parts of the trip for me.
