Sharing the beauty of our world


Tour du Mont Blanc

I want to share something a little different today…

Ashland, Oregon author Reginald Spittle (full disclosure: he is also my husband) takes readers along four iconic European long-distance trekking adventures. An honest and humorous account of the unexpected joys and challenges unleashed by his newly discovered passion.

While capturing the grandeur of the Mont Blanc landscape, Reg was reduced to a mere speck on trail.

Wildflowers were in bloom during our July Tour du Mont Blanc trek.

After two relaxing nights in the resort village of Champex, Switzerland, we were anxious to tackle the homestretch of the Tour du Mont Blanc.

A July trek along Europe’s Tour du Mont Blanc found us picnicking in some pretty spectacular settings. The Col Ferret, a climb up to 8,169 feet, forms border between Italy and Switzerland, and provides a spot for a well deserved rest.

Light and shadow create a beautiful contrast along the Tour du Mont Blanc.

Most of the cattle ignored us, used to the steady stream of trekkers along the trail. One curious cow posed for a snapshot as we traversed the hillside.

One of the many picture perfect days we experienced on the 110 mile Tour du Mont Blanc in 2016.  If you are looking for a challenging trek that rewards you with breathtaking scenery of France, Italy and Switzerland, this may be for you.
