Unwinding in the alps
September 22, 2013
After a grueling summer, my friend Seth and I decided to unwind by taking a hike in the alps.
One of the things I enjoyed about this hike was all the alms along the way. These alms are scattered all along the trails so that hikers do not need to bring all their own supplies, but can rather stop for snacks and drinks, or even spend the night in a guest room (which we did).
Another amazing view. The most amazing part is that Seth is sitting on the very edge of the cliff, looking down across the valley (you can just barely see a little dot on the edge of the cliff–that is him)
This is where we took the wrong turn, which led to us getting waaay off track. It turns out that instead of staying in this nice green valley, we were supposed to climb the ridge (seen in the upper left corner of the picture). A sign or a trail would have been really helpful!
