Border snapshots

What does it take to circle Switzerland on foot following its mountainous border?

Stamina, planning, climbing skills and the right gear. The equipment carried by American writer and climber John Harlin III includes a picture-taking, video-making smartphone so he can upload his impressions to his swissinfo.ch “Border Stories” blog. Photographer Daniel Patitucci captured Harlin “at work” among the natural and human-altered landscapes in and near the Silvretta range.
