2016 Tour du Mont Blanc

For vacation this year, my husband and I decided to tackle the Tour du Mont Blonc through the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps. We originally planned to hike the loop as most do - a 10 day backpacking journey, staying each night at a hut (rustic mountain hostel) - but just didn't have enough vacation days. So we decided to RUN it instead, averaging about 20 miles a day. And it was a blast. 

105 miles. 30,000ft of elevation gain.

5 unbelievable days running the iconic Tour du Mont Blanc.
