European Alps Trekking - Tour du Mont Blanc in July 2014

This image is Alaska's Chugach Mountains
Greetings from Alaska! I will be away from Alaska in July for 3 weeks. I will be hiking/photographing the classic Tour du Mont Blanc trail in the European Alps. The trail circles around Mont Blanc Massif, the highest peak in Western Europe (15,770 feet), for roughly 110 miles into France, Italy, and Switzerland! 

I am going to start the journey at Chamonix, France, explore mountain passes, wildflower fields, alpine villages, glacial valleys, medieval towns, lush meadows, jagged peaks with majestic Mont Blanc views while crossing the Italian and Swiss boarders then back into France.

I will walk with my camera gear for 15 days, and an additional exploration around Chamonix Valley. It will be my first trip to Europe. I'm excited to capture the magnificent landscape along with European cultural influences, which are much different from North American cultures. 

I will post new images on my blog soon after returning... and I will add new page on my main website.
