Welcome to the Destination Zermatt - Matterhorn

This postcard comes to us from Christophe S. in Switzerland. He writes: Hello...thank you for your last postcard. Here is a multiview of a touristic mountain river in Zermatt ( South of the country). The sound of this river among the cliff is wonderful!Have a nice day.

According to (Welcome to the Destination Zermatt - Matterhorn) Gornerschlucht… or Gorner Gorge is the name of the unique wonder of Nature in the immediate vicinity of the Blatten hamlet. It was eroded by the Gornervispe river after the last Ice Age, and was first opened up in the years 1886/87. There are now two ways of crossing the gorge: the upper part of the Gornerschlucht can be crossed in three to four hours with the aid of a mountain guide, as a breathtaking adventure, or the lower part of the Gornerschlucht can be crossed without special equipment using the installation that dates back to 1886/87. On both routes, you will experience the Gornervispe surging around you. The rock here, serpentinite, is around 220 million years old. A natural spectacle, only 15 minutes from Zermatt.

Gila Monster

What is a Gila Monster you might ask? The Gila Monster can be found in the Sonoran Desert in Phoenix, Arizona area. The Gila Monster's bite, although rarely fatal to humans, serves to overpower animal predators and prey. The poison is not injected like that of a snake, but flows into the open wound as the lizard chews on the victim. Our postcrosser Sue says she has never seen one even though she enjoys hiking through the dessert, which is very hot and very dry with an average of 7 inches of rain per YEAR. Happy Postcrossing! Thank you Sue

The People's Republic of China

This is a wonderful postcard from a fellow postcrosser named Mr. Lu. He sent us a surprising package of Chinese goods. Enclosed in the envelope was a translucent sheet with Chinese symbols written by Mr. Lu. Also a postcard and a fancy envelope containing a coin from China.

The postcard reads: Dear friend, This is Lu from China. Have you ever been to China? ( No not yet) This way I send you a coin, and handwriting of me. Hope you'll enjoy! Best Wishes! Mr Lu.

About the postcard: Wulingyuan, located in Zhangjiajie in western Hunan Provance.The area is known for its beautiful mountains & rivers.In 1992,Wulingyuan was included on the World Heritage List by UNESCO.

(PS I do not know what the hand writing he wrote means but when I find out I will post here)
