The next in the "Would you like to see...?" series is a small selection of photos from my Alpine hiking trip this weekend.


My tent!


View towards the Zindlensptiz on the day 1 route


It wasn't all sunshine!


But the rain didn't last for long


Part of the route on day 2


At the top of the Zindlensptiz on day 3

I did 3 summits - Gross Aubrig (1695m), Bockmattli (1840m) and Zindlenspitz (2093m), all done from about 900m. I couldn't tell you distances, as the trails are all marked in hour times rather than km/miles.

You were alone by yourself?

Not even slightly cold! It was 29C at the bottom, so perhaps 18-20 at the summit, and the sun was very strong.

Who took the picture of you? I thought you were alone?

I did - the camera has a timer. Point, press, run (whilst avoiding falling down big cliff)

Some nice landscapes there. Just one question, in the 1st pic, your tent looks quite impressive, but what's that blue thing bottom right of the picture?

That was an alien space ship landing after I'd attached a torch to my forefinger.
