I´ve just got back from a week in the Wallis Alps in Switzerland. This shot was taken just below the summit of the Strahlhorn. Although only 190 meters over the magical 4000 meter level, it took us 6 long hot and sweaty (at least for me) hours to get to this point from the Britannia hut. This area of the Wallis Alps is near the Matterhorn and also goes under the name of Mischabel.
