The Haute Route II

Photos and text by Jonathan Carr

200km walking across Switzerland... and a few hills along the way...

Click on the small pictures to get BIG pictures... or follow the slide show (where pictures are presented in order) by pressing the arrow at the bottom of the page. Beware! you need as many colours free as possible - run netscape or whatever with its own private colour map... better still use another viewer for the images (Netscape is terrible)... or even better get a 24-bit monitor!

Apologies for naming mistakes - I'll have to find a map!
