...perhaps the most beautiful place on Earth

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Gimmelwald from my friends that’ve been there, but nothing could have prepared me for that first glimpse of the Alps. John was the first to wake up and look out the dorm window, and his one word remark of “Jesus” pretty much sums it up. Gimmelwald, a small village of 130 people nestled on a cliff amidst the Alps, could possibly be the most beautiful place on Earth.

Luckily for us, the storm that just dumped fresh snow on the mountains had moved on and the weather was perfect for hiking to the nearby village of Mürren and enjoying the views from the Schilthorn. The photos below are from our hikes around Gimmelwald.
