It’s been exactly one year since our trip to Grindelwald.
Time then to marvel once more at the sheer beauty of this Swiss valley and the mountains that tower above it.

On our journey to Grindelwald I read The White Spider, Heinrich Harrer’s tale of the first ascent of the Eiger.
The North Face now in front of me, I stood fascinated, re-tracing their steps; The Hinterstoisser Traverse; The Ramp, Death Bivouac, the Spider itself; an imposing and hostile environment, still a place for death or glory.
At night, from the safety of the hotel, the light spills from the station windows, and Orion stands guard.
