When scheduling the haute route trip, Proguiding Services adds an extra day to the schedule, in case bad weather requires we stay an extra night in the mountains.
If all goes as planned, on this day we are planning on skiing over to Cervinia, Italy to have a long, luxurious lunch!!
We’re looking forward to seeing the spring flowers blooming in Zermatt, as they are in Chamonix. I am afraid we are too early to see the famous Edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum), they are usually in bloom from May until July.
We’ve bought a packet of seeds, however and hope to have success growing them in the states.
I adore this framed display of dried Edelweiss I saw at Gorsuch.
