On Day Fifteen, we scrambled home from Ronchamp through the ever-present tunnels that support Switzerland’s highway system…until we got to Gotthard Pass. Here, we chose to go over this section of the Alps instead of through them. The winding, narrow road (an engineering feat in itself) lead to a sensory reward—a landscape of glacial pools and lingering snow patches (along with the necessary drop in temperature!).
