Note: Be prepared for a long post with LOTS of pictures!
How are you all?
WOW, where has time gone? I just realized it has been since February 2 since I've last blogged. Maybe I'm in a blog funk or as some fellow bloggers have called it "A case of the Februaries!"... But, I suppose there hasn't been anything too exciting going on here at the Adventures of Jon and Steph. We have been training for our half marathon that takes place this coming May, we've both been busy with work and daily life happenings, but we did manage to get away last weekend and had a little adventure in Switzerland!
Saturday morning we got up early and made the 4 hour drive to Zurich, Switzerland. The city is like any normal large city with beautiful old buildings and lovely churches. But one thing I loved about Zurich is the river running through the city, which then led to Lake Zurich. When we arrived in the city, we jumped on the tram, and rode it to the center of downtown. We then walked down the river, through the city, to the beginning of the lake. Here are some pictures I took along the way.
Before we left for our trip, Jon did a little research, and came across a look out point at one of the mountains in Zurich, at which you can see a panoramic view of all of Zurich and Lake Zurich. Of course we were really interested in seeing this, so Sunday morning we woke up early and headed for the look out point known as Uetliberg. Jon and I LOVE to hike, it's one of our most favorite things to do so we were really excited to see that there was a hiking trail to the top. This hike was one of the most beautiful treks I've ever been on. I had never seen so much snow in my entire life, it was incredible. My friend (and fellow Okie) Jaci commented on one of my pictures on Facebook, that it looked like Narnia! She couldn't have put it better. It was like we were in another world. The pictures really don't do it justice, but of course you know I LOVE to show photos on my blog... So here are some shots from our 3 hour trek.

We had a fantastic time in Zurich and a wonderful Valentines day all thanks to this guy right here!! What a catch ;)
Tomorrow I'll swing back by for a quick recap of the last of our Switzerland adventure! We went to the Rhine Falls about 45 minutes outside of Zurich on the Swiss and German border.
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! It's almost the weekend!!
