Swiss Alps in Summer 2016

Did we die and go to heaven? No, we just hiked our way there!

Backpacks carrying all of our shit: Check.
Dorky sun hats: Check
Sunscreen: Check-ish (I used my home made sunscreen, which worked, to a point. More on that another time.)

David and I ended our Summer 2016 vacation with a three-day trip to the Swiss Alps, which included a day-long hike on the Eiger Trail. Trekking along the Northface of the Eiger, this epic landscape that includes both wild flowers and glaciers, there really aren’t words to describe the beauty of this area. Every ten feet or so the view seemed to change enough to warrant another stop for photos, so we have a lot!

Here are some that hopefully show the trip better than I could ever describe it.
