Matterhorn in the Valais Alps
13 Apr, 2013 | From Vovchik of Slovenia

The postcard features Matterhorn in the Valais Alps. The Matterhorn is a mountain in the Pennine Alps on the border between Switzerland and Italy. Its summit is 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest peaks in the Alps.

The Matterhorn was one of the last great Alpine peaks to be climbed and its first ascent marked the end of the golden age of alpinism.
