Haute Route Trek - Dispatch #1

Haute Route Trek
July 21 - 31, 2010
Guide: Jeff Reis
Trekkers: Susan Roach, Mary Faini

"Greetings from Switzerland. The trek is going well. Sunday morning the skies cleared to give us a spectacular view of the Grand Combin with fresh snow on its majestic glaciers and icefalls. We had a close view just across the valley in a park while 8 ibex grazed nearby, keeping an eye on use as we took many pictures. We are meeting many interesting people from all over the world at the huts and hotels along the route. The food is amazing and we feel we have earned it with our long days of hiking. Wish you could join us. Cheers!"
