The route (from Veduz, Lichtenstein to Montreux, Switzerland) :
I have always been lured to the absolute, pristine beauty of Switzerland. As one of my sons once said to me, “Switzerland is too beautiful to be true. It is like an ideal movie set.” I had visited several times, but never had the time to settle in and really experience this stunning, alpine country. Then one day as I was perusing the Cicerone website for possible future hikes I found Kev Reynolds’ “Alpine Pass Route” guidebook. My hiking friend, Lynda Sorrick, and I decided that this was a perfect trek for us. After 254 miles, 51,194′ of ascent and 42,430′ of descent and 16 mountain passes, we were right! We met many lovely people, petted lots of animals, and saw scenery that was truly magnificent!
The following links will carry you through the hike as we experienced it. Notice that a link to the next day’s blog is at the end of each day’s entries.
