This is Mount Pilatus in Obwalden/Nidwalden, Switzerland near Lake Lucerne. This area is located in central Switzerland in the Swiss Alps. We took a vertical train up the mountain to visit the hotel and lodge located at the top. The journey up the mountain climbs through pine forest and rocky fields with a few glimpses of mountain meadows and snow.
This is a panoramic shot of the valley looking down from the Hotel. It took a while to get this shot as we waited for clouds to move through so we could actually see the valley. This was just a brief moment of clarity without clouds at the top of the world.
