Winter season 2000-1 in Switzerland

Alison and Marlowe snowshoeing with the Older Person

By a happy confluence of circumstances, Alison Peck and Marlowe Peck were able to visit their old dad, from Bonn and Philadelphia respectively, at the same time, during the Christmas season 2000-2001.

Here are some commemorative photos of the occasion.

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.
