Bluemlisalp Glacier, 44" H x 60" W

Embroidery on silk, paint pen.

The trail from Lauterbrunnen to Kandersteg, Switzerland (in the Bernese Alps) crosses a steep pass known as Hohturli (the little door). After the pass, the Bluemlisalp Glacier spills over a long ridge in twisted braids of ice, and parallels the trail as the trail descends to the stunning granite-bound Lake Oeschinensee. The topography, hiking trails, and melting data from the Bluemlisalp Glacier are embroidered and explained.
