Check Out These Delicious Photos

Two of our guests had a chance to do some modeling!

We just received the following note from two guests that we sent on one of our custom self-guided hiking tours through the Alps. Lucky for us, they know a couple of photographer friends that like to hang around Zermatt. Throw in a few clothing items from Smartwool and, voila, you have the perfect alpine photo shoot. (In case you’re wondering, yes, that’s the Matterhorn in the background).

Be sure to click on the link to Patitucci Photo. He took some great photos of these two during their trip. Enjoy.

From our guests:

“Ok – we’re having a little bit of fun!! Check out the photo link below. We couldn’t of hit the weather any better.

Dan and Janine our photographer friends we fired up, and they had a couple prime smartwool models, just for the matterhorn. Only 12 hours of hiking and posing like super posers. Holy cow is that place beautiful…but a bit of a shock to the system after no people in the Bregalia. We are so stinkin lucky!! The only bad weather day we’ve had so far has been a travel day to Zermatt.

We’re getting spoiled rotten in super luxury hotels – there’s a roman bath in this one – sauna, steam, jacuzzi, pool – deluxe!

We’re in Chamonix and keith is officially in heaven. This place is the land of rock climbing. We’re headed up to a hut tomorrow am for 2 days, then back to Chamonix – then up to another hut. Ooh this is going to be good. We played on the rock today and cruised around the Mer de Glace, in awe of the big views.

Hope all is grand.

Love Julie and Keith
