Chamonix to Zermatt Haute Route • April 1-8, 2011

Our first Chamonix to Zermatt Haute Route was fantastic. Great folks! Great weather, and in spite of a reputedly terrible winter for snow, we had fine skiing conditions.

Joy and Patrick Kettler, along with Thomas Kral joined Kathy and Mark on this tour. Here are a few pics.

For the entire story and a bigger collection of photos (some 30 of them) see our entry in our Recent Trips Gallery on our web site.
