This is the Matterhorn (not my photo):

This is the view from the summit (my photo), Monta Rosa is the massive on the upper right:

This is on the path to the glacier crossing to the Hutte on the Monta Rosa:

This is looking back from Monta Rosa to that same path.  You can barely make out the path on the upper left side of the photo:

Here’s me crossing that glacier on a different trip: (notice my really cool red pants)

One last glacier to cross

Photo of me on a different Monte Rosa Climb, I ran out of gas and DNS (did not summit), should have worn the red pants!  That ‘pointy mountain in the center background is the Matterhorn.
