July - August 2012

The view from the summit of Schilthorn. image page


My ultimate goal for this trip was to climb Dufourspitze and Mont Blanc. Unfortunately, an untimely illness required emergency surgery, and I had to abandon those plans. Even so, the Swiss Alps present a beautiful setting for physical recovery. I enjoyed this trip immensely.

Actually, I did write a report, but I am hesitant to post it on SummitPost because of my failure to achieve my original goals. As you probably know, this trip was meant to include Mont Blanc and Dufourspitze.

It has been hard for me to accept what happened, and the report is not as good as it could have been had the trip been a complete success. If you want to see the story on a local Washington website, here it is: Part 1 , Part 2 , Part 3.
