SNOW RABBIT IN FRONT OF HOTEL
Mary felt at home in Zermatt. Granted Gore Mt. was by no means comparable to the Metterhorn that toward majestically over the mountain village. The atmosphere of Zermatt was very much like the ski town of North Creek, New York . Unlike North Creek, NY there are absolutely no cars on the street ( a condition that exists even today.) It is an open and friendly village, with cobbled alleyways and quaint little restaurants.
