3km before Montreux to Montreux
Day total: 3 km
VA1 total: 319 km
Walking into Montreux was a time of reflection about the last 15 days. We were fortunate with the weather in that we had little rain. I know we missed some views with the fog and heat haze. I enjoyed going thru the villages and farms. My favorite will always be the parts above the trees. My enjoyment went way up after I decided I didn’t need to hike all of the connector sections between the good parts. I am always grateful when I get to the end of a long hike without any serious accidents or injuries. A lot has to go right. And it did.
We went across the street to a cafe with beautiful food, got some take-away and went back to the lake.
On our way to Sargans and the start of this hike we made reservations to fly from Geneve to Corsica on September 2nd. Chamonix seemed like a perfect place to relax for a couple days so we hopped on a train. Chamonix’s event of the week is the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc. So everything and everybody in town is all about running. Fun!
