Wednesday. April 19
Jim Borowski will give a slide show and talk about their trip last summer. Tour Du Mont Blanc is one of the most popular long-distance walks in Europe and considered one of the classic long-distance walking trails. It circles the Mont Blanc massif coving approximately 110 miles, it passes through France, Switzerland & Italy along seven valleys and a few mountain passes. Mont Blanc stands at over 15,800 feet and has many glaciers flowing from its peak which makes for a very scenic mountain.
We hiked through a collection of small towns along the trail and stayed at many fine hotels. Bill and Lennie Steinmetz, Allen and Lois Rothenberger and Mark Kern also were on this trip. Refreshments and social time will follow the presentation. Information on upcoming outdoor events will be available. Everyone is welcome. Reservations not required. Contact coordinator with any questions.
