How to walk across the alps

Eastside Road, Healdsburg, December 1, 2008
BACK FROM A MONTH in Italy, and revisiting this blog, I realize it'll be a little confusing to anyone seeing it for the first time.

This is an account of a walk from Evian-les-Bains to Nice, about 450 miles, done from June 20 to July 28, 2008, with my grandson Henry and my friend Mac. I've posted a day-by-day account, with photos.

Since this is a blog, though, the account shows up on the Internet in reverse order. If you want to read through the walk in the correct order, you'll have to click on August, above; then on Introduction.

One day perhaps I'll write this trip up in a more coherent manner. In the meantime, I hope this won't be too confusing, or too complicated.

One other thing: I've been trying to put more photos from the walk online, but it's a slow process. The week of July 13 is all I've managed to get on; you can find them here.
