Two years ago, my Dad and I did a seven-day hike through Vanoise National Park in the French Alps. It was a magnificent trip with stunning scenery of jagged mountains, wildflowers and gorgeous views. Hiking is one of my absolute favorite pastimes. I love zigzagging up and down the mountain, breathing in the fresh, pure air and marveling at the incredible beauty of our world.
For me, hiking is a way to relax, reflect and simply enjoy all the highs and lows of life. I love it and wish I could do it more. Here are a few photos of one of my favorite hikes we did in Vanoise National Park. The hike to Refuge de la Dent Parrachee where we spent the night. I have written at length on all the hikes we did in Vanoise National Park, however, this one stood out as one of the best.
