Day 78: Fiesch to Susten

Monday June 20, 2005, 62 km (39 miles) – Total so far: 4,853 km (3,016 miles)

It was all downhill for our morning’s ride to Susten and really hot again. We’re meeting up with my parents for a few days staying in a luxurious mobile home on a campsite high up above Susten in German-speaking Valais.

We are planning to visit the Matterhorn at nearby Zermatt, and Saas Fee, which is often described as the pearl of the Alps.
