    My climb of the Mont Blanc in 1838
    ...Such is the view from the top of Mont Blanc, that togetherness, so imposing, more radiant to the sun light. The sky, it was of a gloomy azure, from our head it lightened till becoming plain blue over the horizon: but the colours were so fused in to one...

    Snow, ice, granite, quartz crystals
    Snow, ice, granite, quartz crystals are all part of the DNA that I have inherited from generations of mountains people and alpine guides. One step at the time towards the peak. Joy, enthusiasm, tiredness, the descent towards home, the final rest. When I lift my gaze I linger on the...

    Wisdom and Presence
    The mountains are full of wisdom, they have an antique Presence, a Spirit that tells the story of the eras: it’s part of their power. For some it’s easy to access their language, their wisdom, for others they are conglomerations of minerals. On the peaks embraced by the mystical silence,...

    The philosophy of the snowflake
    When you live in the mountains you spend magical evenings looking at cold water drops that freezing descend in the shape of ice crystals.
