Along the Haute Route to Switzerland

We had begun our quest in the French town of Chamonix, nestled in a peaceful valley between jagged alpine peaks. At our journey’s end was Zermatt, Switzerland, and the fabled peak of the Matterhorn. But many days of wondrous hiking, surprises, and beauty were in store before we would feast our eyes on that grand reward.
