9,744 : Schilthorn/Piz Gloria, CH
As I mentioned a few days ago, the Schilthorn stands more than 9,700 ft (2,900 m) above sea level. The day was rather hazy and I forgot to use my polarizing filter. While there was some lovely layering among the mountains, Piz Gloria closes at 6:00 p.m., so we weren't able to stay on for sunset. Hopefully we'll be making a return trip in November and that will afford us some spectacular early evening views.
