First day on a Tour of the Matterhorn trek today.  It's been a few years since guiding on this superb trek around one of the most iconic mountains in the world.  Bridget and Sue have already trekking the TMB and on the Haute Route.  This is their next step up. High, 3000m+ cols , two glacier crossings, fabulous remote scenery are just some of the ingrediants on this 8 day trek. Today is the easiest of the days, the Augstboard Pass from St. Nicklaus to Gruben.  The sun shone all day and the trail was much quieter than of late.
