Bernese Oberland, Switzerland 1986

Bernese Oberland, Switzerland 1986

Schilthorn cable car rises above Murren. Pictured: the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau across from the Lauterbrunnen Gorge below. Distant blue ice glaciers fill the slopes beyond. From the tram going up to the Piz Gloria, James Bond restaurant, I viewed ravens and a couple of ibex or chamois on the rocks/ice below me-holding my skis inside. Once on the summit I skied the most challenging run ever, anywhere in my skiing history, the Kanonenrohr or gunbarrel. I was 36 in my skiing prime of life. Watercolor
