Jungfraujoch


Passenger view At a rough estimate, each human passenger is needing only one and a half huskies to move him or her, (plus sledge weight) along the course. This probably says a lot about low frictional coefficients on ice (who needs wheels!), as well as doggy power.
A great opportunity for the family album, but at high altitude and low temperature, it's not something most of us could linger over! One for someone's album

 
Jungfraujoch Despite the conditions, the alpine view is staggering enough to demand a good long look.
...and do please note if you are planning a visit to this wonderful part of the European continent, that this is close to the altitude at which oxygen would be mandatory if you were flying an unpressurised aircraft - expect at least that you cannot exert yourself too much until acclimatised.
