In August of 2014 I returned from an outstanding 10 day hike through the Swiss Alps. A close friend and I set our sights on the classic Walker’s Haute Route for our trek, but we decided to try it in reverse. This meant starting at the Matterhorn and making our way west to a conclusion in Chamonix, France at the foot of Mont Blanc. As we planned, a little apprehension grew simply because I could only find one account on the internet of someone who had done the route in this direction. The trip report was not very helpful, so made a commitment to myself that I would write a report worthy of reading while also being informative and helpful.
Several months later, I’ve finished the piece to my satisfaction, and I’m proud to share it with the world – hikers and couch sitters a like. I hope it is a joy to read, and I hope someone out there will either be inspired to emulate our adventure or go seeking one of their own. Happy reading and happy trekking!
