Author’s note: This is a continuation on my series of trekking La Vanoise National Park in the high Alps of France. To see all posts in this series, click here.
After a strenuous morning of hiking, we finally made it to one of the highest points of our week-long trek. I was the first in the group to get to the top and what a sensational view we had. The reward was worth all the sweat and effort. It felt great to be on top of the world!
“Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb.” — Greg Child
Stunning views were all around. It felt like being in a giant postcard. So insanely beautiful and surreal, it took my breath away.
“Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain tops are within reach.” — John Muir
Stay tuned for the long hike down…..
That must be quite the experience with all those views!
Yes it was something else. That is why I love to hike so much. There is no place like being in the mountains…
Wow, spectacular views, esp “all those peaks”. I’d be in tears if I were up there…
Thanks! Yes it was surreal. So beautiful….:)
I would have to say hiking to the top was worth it – Breathtaking and Beautiful – thanks for sharing. Have a Great Day:)
Thanks Renee! You too!
Incredible photos! I’m insanely jealous. Looks so surreal and so… far away. I’d love to be able to see similar views one day. Cheers for posting these pictures for the rest of us to see. 🙂
