The Alps, August 2010, with Gary Arce

Gary and I met in Zermatt, Switzerland to begin our climbs of the Matterhorn, and Mont Blanc.
The Mountain Guide.

Gary on the Breithorn, a warm up outing prior to the Matterhorn.

The Briethorn has some stimulating snow, ice, and rock climbing, occasionally on very narrow ridges.

The local music festival features the Alpshorn quartet.
