Proper Sledging

Jo and I go sledging in subzero temperatures from Kleine Scheidegg to Grindelwald, along a hairpin 7.5 km route through the forests beneath the north wall of the Eiger.

A winter weekend

In January of 2005 – five years ago this week – Jo visited me in Switzerland for the first time. These photos show our wonderful time together.
