Today is the day! It's finally here! After 6 months of training, we are off to meet our friends for our Alps hike from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland. I added up all the stats yesterday:
In 13 days we will hike 216 kilometers through 11 mountain passes at an average of 2,500 meters in elevation. We will have a total height gain of 15,000 meters and a total height loss of 14,400 meters. EEEEEEK!!! Good thing we are with 12 of our closest friends for decades! To say that I NEVER could have even CONSIDERED this before WLS might be the understatement of the year.
I may not check in along the way, but I promise I'll post a few pictures after we get back. Views are supposed to be spectacular!
