Winter season 2000-1 in Switzerland

All of life's victims who've entered into their second half-century doubtless have noticed that life gathers speed and passes us by much more quickly than once it did. (High school seemed to stretch out forever and NEVER seemed to be done with. Not so, the 1990s. Just when we learned to stop typing dates 198---- and go to 199---, lo!, it's 200---.)

So, too, the winter of 2000-2001 has zipped right on by, pell-mell. Pretty much a good thing, too. But here are a few photos of whatever can still be salvaged from all that havoc.

Early April snowshoe hikes

You will not find this interesting unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.
