I am planning a walk across Switzerland in Aug. – Sept. 2012. At the end of my walk, I will meet Sandy in Geneva. We will spend the next 10 days in the Bernaise Oberland (home of the Eiger, Jungfrau, and Mönch) and the Valais, principally in Zermatt just below the Matterhorn. I am writing this Blog so friends, family and anyone else who is interested can follow my trek and enjoy the people and the experience.
Having just turned 69 on August 1, this walk is a bit of a challenge. When walking in the Alps, the difficulty is not measured in total distance but in elevation gain (and loss) and total hours on the trail. A friend made an apt comparison: it is roughly the equivalent of doing a rin-to-rim traverse of the Grand Canyon every day for 16 days.
I hope you will leave comments if you like what you see. I apologize that I will not be able to reply to all comments.
