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…..
