FINA: Holmes and Watson travel from Leuk to Interlaken via the Gemmi Pass, "still deep in snow."
Watson: "Once, I remember, as we passed over the Gemmi and walked along the border of the melancholy Daubensee, a large rock which had been dislodged from the ridge upon our right clattered down and roared into the lake behind us. In an instant Holmes had raced up on to the ridge, and standing upon a lofty pinnacle, craned his neck in every direction. It was in vain that our guide assured him taht a fall of stones was a common chance in teh sprintime at that spot. He said nothing, but he smiled at me with the air of a man who sees the fulfilment of that which he had expected."
