Crazy Summer Weather

It's supposed to be July but the last 2 weeks have seen rain and snow every day. Sounds awful? It depends who you go with. I was lucky enough to have a group of 5 incredibly enthusiastic people with me for my second Chamonix Zermatt trek of the season.and they appreciated everything the trek threw at them. After all, when it's cloudy you look at the flowers more; when it snows the glaciers get a fresh coat of paint; when it clears you are grateful for every view you get; and when it's cold it isn't hot for hiking uphill.

For these guys there was no bad weather they were just really happy to be in the mountains. So we had a great trek and made it to Zermatt against the odds and very proud of ourselves.

Thanks folks!
