This summer, we took our 2 sons for their first real mountain hike. Our sons (8 and 10) turned out to be naturals and kept running out ahead of us. That was followed by a bit of climbing; fortunately, there were chains that we could hold on to to pull ourselves up.
At the top of the mountain, with its impressive view of the Mont Blanc on one side and Lake Geneva and the Jura Mountains on the other, we enjoyed our picnic! (It’s amazing how delicious a simple cheese sandwich and a bottle of water can be…)
Plans for the summer
Without Famke we would never have dared do this, but we’re so glad we did! Our kids are still talking about it, and we will definitely be going back for another beautiful mountain hike with Famke and her dog Olle.
We might even choose a hut-to-hut tour this year!
