In our yearly quest to explore the world's most interesting mountains, we find ourselves in December of 2011 at the base of the Matterhorn in picturesque Zermatt, Switzerland.
The Matterhorn stands an imposing 14,690 feet and is situated in the Swiss Alps, overlooking the Italian border. The Matterhorn derives its name from the German words Matte, meaning “meadow,” and Horn, which translates to “peak.” The Matterhorn actually has two, distinct summits, the Swiss summit on the east and the Italian summit on the west. This beautiful mountain has etched itself as an iconic emblem of the Alps.
As previously blogged, Los Angeles product liability attorney David Shoop successfully summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, in 2010. Kilimanjaro, at 19,340 feet, is the highest point on the African continent and the highest, free-standing mountain in the world. You can read about that successful summit bid here:
Our next scheduled climb will be a summit attempt of Mt. Elbrus in 2012, the highest point on the European continent.
