Steep Descent by fotoblah

Steep Descent

The cable car to the top of the mountain begins and ends in a valley with high almost vertical sides. This is the view going back to the valley.

The cable car was packed with people. When we felt the change in direction to going down steeply almost all of the conversations stopped for a few moments until people realized what had happened.

There are black spots on the photo because this was taken through the dirty window of the cable car.

A beautiful shot. There is something really special about the Swiss Alps.

@fishers Thank. Agreed about the Alps being special. I'd like to spend more time there.

you were really high. That looks like quite a nerve wracking ride. The mountains around Zurich are special to me - that is where I spent my honeymoon.

@helenhall Nerve wracking if you're afraid of heights. I'm not, so I enjoyed the steep descent. I also enjoyed the view the one time I flew my hang glider to 11,700 ft. It was cold, but the view was worth it.
