Enjoying the great weather, watching the surfers at a local beach
The Eiger Sanction
The Eiger is a iconic Mountain among climbers, some may know it for the bad Elint Eastwood movie made in the 70's
Hiking in the Rain
A humid and steap hike in the mountains above Lauterbrunnen Swiss
Crossing the Border
We had to get off our bus in Italy and walk across the border into Switzerland at St. Bernard Pass
Grand Paridiso NP

This is looking from the meadows of Valnonty toward to Glaciated Mountains
Chamonix valley Chalet
Most homes in the mountains looked similar to this one in Chamonix, France
Euro's take a lift half way up the hike. We, Poor Americans hiked the 3000 feet from the Valley to the lake. Thanks goodness there was three places to pick up coffee and food along the way! Love the French ways!
It's Summer Time!

Cirque of the Towers
This was our little home for a few days up in the Cirque. The view was spectacular.
WolfsHead Traffic Jam
We seemed to have picked the day that everyone else had to do this traverse. The day before and after we did it, we saw no climbers on it. Just our luck! We ended up passing all these parties thanks to Bob's speed climbing obsession.
Wolf's Head Ridge
This cool route traverses inbetween and along granite towers that make up Wolf's Head.
This was a really fun climb with a beautiful view at the top.
This was such a amazing lake. It is so obvious that this valley was glaciated at one time. Deep lake is cool because it covers a granite bowl and cascades down the granite valley into clear lake at the bottom of the valley.
Tying the knot Hippy Style
Our dear Lance became a minister so he could marry us. I put him in charge of the ceremony. I think he was more nervous than Bob and I. But as always he went all out pulled off the best wedding ever!
All the beautiful women that attended the event
Thanks to all our friends for enduring the misquitos and groover and sharing this moment with us.

Welcome to Sayulita
Bob's sis Jill invited us to Sayulita, Mexico for a few days. She spent two weeks chillin in the sweet, quiet beach town. I loved the dirt roads, good cheap food, friendly free roaming dogs, and of course warm ocean water w/gentle rolling waves.
This was the town cemetery. It was beautiful. Lots of unique stones and statues. People left tequila bottles and plastic flowers on their loved ones graves.
This was the lovely porch and view we woke up to every morning. I loved the casita! It was totally open to the outdoors.
We wanted to drink out of a coconut. We found this woman who took the coconut and chopped off the top w/a machetti knife and poured some liquor in w/the coconut juice. It's really called a coco loco. It didn't taste that great or get us that drunk, but it looked cool.
The colorful laundry tree
We passed this house to and from town from our Casita. The people live so simply here. It must take days for laundry to dry, kus our towels and swimsuits never did while we were there.
There were these cute surfer kids that would run around town barefoot/bleached hair and only wearing swim trunks. They would be in the archade dancing one minute then skimboarding the next. Bob took a ton of pictures of them playing in the water and showed them later. They were so excited, they thanked him.
I love that people in Mexico are so real. They just chill on buckets and drink beer in front of the liquor store. It was such a great town. Real small, no ATM so what cash you bring in is all you got. We had to budget our money, but it was easy to do kus everything was cheap.
Pedro the Peddler
This guy was awesome! He was trying to sell his sand art to teenage girls who were trying to ignore him. Why won't you buy Pedros paintings? He need to buy a shirt, or does he?
