Finding peace for some is a rare experience. For me finding peace comes from being outside in nature and in the beauty that surrounds us. Last year, Paul and I went on an amazing trip climbing the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt. We traveled along glaciers and over high passes and stayed the night in mountain huts. What an experience! The Alps are among the most amazingly breathtaking (literally) mountains in the world. Today I get to go back to the Alps. On this trip I will be climbing the second tallest peak in the Alps, the Monte Rosa. We will travel for 5 days along the glaciers, up and over rocky ridges, and we’ll stay our final night in the highest hut in Europe. It will take a lot of work but I know that it will bring peace and healing. Enjoy the rest of the beautiful summer and find some peace outside – in the beauty of the ocean or the magnificence of the mountains. Ciao!
