Mike Thurk shot these photos during our second Engadine Trek of the summer. This handsome group hiked the eastern Swiss Alps during mid August.
Ryder-Walker guest “Jim” (pictured right) demands that the group stop for a beer. We hope they stopped because Jim clearly had his trip leader, Staffan Bjorklund, by the throat in this photo. Note* Threatening your tour leader is not a suggested use of trekking poles. For a beer, however, we understand.
That’s the Sciora mountain range in the background. Can I get a witness?
Mountain Kung Fu.
