Alps Haute Route Trek - 7/28 - 8/7

Guide: Jeff Reis

Trekkers: Jacob and Leanna

Jeff Reis sent this final dispatch to conclude the ten day trek on 8/8: Trekkers Jacob and Leanna enjoyed spectacular scenery and a variety of flavors of ice cream and chocolates in the Swiss alps last week. 

 We saw awesome glaciers and icefalls, rugged peaks, high alpine lakes on most every day as well as wild ibex and chamois at times. 

 Spending every night in small hotels or mountain huts, we were served delicious meals and mingled with other hikers from all over the world. Most days were physically demanding so we had to load up on sweets and local cuisine daily.
