Rigi, Queen of the Mountains

When I saw that the sky was blue and the clouds were white, I asked my mother and niece if they wanted to go up to Mt. Rigi. They said yes right away because the weather was quite nice. Little did we know that the weather could change so abruptly once up in Mt. Rigi.

We took the cogwheel railway in Vitznau. As the cogwheel went up to Mt. Rigi, we still saw that the sky was blue. It was even sunny when we arrived in Rigi Kulm. We just went inside the toilet for a while, and when we went out just after 5 to 10 minutes, it was no longer sunny. The sun suddenly hid from the clouds. It became very cold and quite windy too. It was probably below freezing point with the wind.

Mt. Rigi, which is 1,800 meters above sea level, is called the Queen of the Mountains in Switzerland.
