More info

The 4,478 meter high Matterhorn is a landmark in Switzerland and because of ist shape and history one of the most famous mountains worldwide. The summit was first reached on July 14th 1865 by a seven-man expedition team led by the Brit Edward Whymper. Four of the seven climbers died on the way down.

Rhododendron ferrugineum (sometimes called alpenrose, snow-rose, or rusty-leaved alpenrose) is an evergreen shrub that grows just above the tree line in the Alps, Pyrenees, Jura and northern Apennines, on acid soils. It is the type species for the Rhododendron genus.
