Now that’s a horn!

P1060209

I got a bit sun-burnt on Thursday (sunlight reflecting off the snow) while getting some sweet views of the Matterhorn.  “Horns” form when multiple glaciers are on three or more sides of the mountain, and I imagine the separate glaciers carve out cirques and there is probably a decent amount of rock avalanching!

It’s bigger than it looks.
