I have been in Switzerland, col de la forclaz And from Argenti?re town and far less touristy than Chamonix Mont-Blanc. The heat in the jungle not accompanied me here. Today was a rainy morning mist which is disappointing. Need to search through a magnifying glass. This year was probably the neighborhood and then find a gray suit.
Thanks to followers. Shirley and I successfully on APR.

One of the seven national trails in Switzerland.

Number 6.

600 kilometres divided to sections 34 with almost 40,000 feet of ascending and descending accumulates.

There are sections with ascending and descending 2,000 feet of cumulative daily.

Very rough trail. Not for beginners.

I go the Jubilee trail called them ספרו1 the Via Alpina route it almost overlaps to APR.

Alpine passes trail named trail 6 and is 600 km to 320 km vs I'm going to do (divided into 15 stages with approx. 20,000 metres ascent) – both are in medium-hard difficulty (and the way that Bill 7).

Not going to be easy, that's for sure.

Day 1: Argentiere-Chamonix

(31.8) started in Jamaica (EasyJet, 220). Having come from the Levant, East out of the airport to European cold breeze but instead got forward 33 degrees. Valley-Hants underway without delay. Convection have two young Israelis who intended to go to the TMB. We talked on the way and according to their wishes realized they came unprepared. They had no idea where the night and accommodates them accommodation in Les Houches. In a brief stop in town couldn't point them to Michel Fagot Gite, show them where the local supermarket and explain to them how to get to the trailhead. It was the least I could do to help them.

I came to Chamonix at around 17:00, earlier than expected. My original plan was to stay in Residential camp, but I decided to start walking today towards the first, Argentiere. I took the walking sticks and found one of them wrong so I went with it. The weather was nice. The trail passes through beautiful forest on the rise. Two hours later I arrived in town. Small world: just this morning I was at home, and now when I anymore Oh no still in France seven hours on the trail. I was going to stay in the local camping ground but on the way there I passed next to Les Randonneurs turned out as option b, 20 euros in a common room used alone with showers and WC. The room had view pages with minerals and rocks from the area and books in French and English. A great place indeed. In the evening I went out for dinner and a beer in the town centre. In summary, it was a good Sunday and a good start for the rest of the journey.

Day 2: Argentier to Col de la Forclaz

I woke up the morning of the day. After breakfast at the hostel (plus 4 EUR) I. Up to Le Tour, the weather was overcast with no rain and not particularly pleasant way. In Le Tour, beginning the ascent to Col de Balme it started to rain. Putting my rain gear and began climbing towards the crossing. The rain became stronger and continued to descend. Luckily the rain was about it was less painful compared to the TMB travellers who came in front of the rain and straight forward. All this happens when extra overhead stretched cable could have brought me up in a few minutes, which of course I had gotten him, as did others. But I have adopted such principles have to be told they are stupid, on which you must go to each meter and no shortcuts. Faithful to the lofty high principles, which incidentally very soon ithooh them first crack, I continued walking in the pouring rain.

When I got to the cabin aisle refrained from entering (I remember walking the TMB last year I went and asked the woman who runs the place a sandwich and something to drink, I got a piece of moldy bread with some cheese barely managed to swallow and lowers hot drink that she pulled off the shelf when I asked if I could get some colder is not answered and is not healthy for a witch.).

Rain weakened but still tops were covered in fog. However I decided to go through the longer variant Les Grandes and sorry. The route provides spectacular observations towards the glacier of Trient and the Fenetre mountains d ' Arpete. The weather improved later and even Rainbow appeared. The trail descends to the town of Trient and then rises back to Col de la Forclaz. And I was wondering: why on earth should descend into the Valley, surround some houses in Trient and ascend back to Forclaz? After further deliberation, pondering the principles that I mentioned earlier I decided that with all due respect there is also a limit to reason and continued to go directly towards the Col de la Forclaz.

On the Forclaz I meant to stay was completely deserted, and I decided to check the option at the adjacent camping. In General, this trek preferred too often for my taste, camping under the roof at the tent. Paid 77 Frank on halfboard in a private room in a medium not even had a shower and WC.  I sold Israeli lobby is lovely walking part of the TMB. We ate dinner together. We spent a very nice evening, we talked about all sorts of things, I remember the stories of trips made in the Negev desert with a pod of 20 pounds, including a gun and bullets in self-defense.

Day 3: from Col de la Forclaz LE Chable

After breakfast with Israeli company broke up with her and I. Because Champex Le chable too close and too far away for a bit I decided to start walking and decide according to the destination. Last year already went through the mountains d ' Arpete Fenetre so I decided this time to go through a Bovine valve which is the alternate.

She's a bovine valve which is a secluded farm in a buffet of ways. I stopped there to rest and delicious soup. At about 13:00 arrived to Champex. Local camping ground was empty and even the front office were closed on the bench there sat a few Israelis. After a short break and calculating times continued to go to Le Chable next. The route on the mountain slopes and overlooks the beautiful landscape of the Valley of the quarries there can't spoil it.

Le Chable arrived more than half an hour faster than the time it was listed on the sign. This is the place to mention that walked without maps and directory of 2008 Trailblazer emerged as old-fashioned and out of date. Most places that appeared in the directory no longer exists. I finally got called hostel Le Stop which is the main street in the windowless cellar with shared accommodations cramped and small (39 francs to spend.) The hostel was completely empty and rather surreal night in this strange place.

Day 4: LE Chable Cabane du Mont-Fort

Today part of expected it. According to my manual 1636 m and 0 m ups downs. It was also a day of few faults. Exiting Le Chable was quite confusing but I managed somehow to cling to. My camera screen is broken and I didn't know if the glitch also affects the photographs themselves and so I took the phone and alternately with the camera. Later one wrong references and pumpkin trail considerable variance that brought me to the town of Verbier. The town itself is pretty nice which made me regret a little less of the variance. I went to the supermarket to buy some groceries and managed somehow to lose inside the supermarket, walking stick was installed. I searched everywhere but the Earth probably swallowed him. I went into the pro shop next door and asked about walking sticks, but the cheapest cost 100 name sticks Frank, so I decided to give up.

I continued to go with Karen Clambin village signs to know he's on the trail. After walking bugs that the rifle was ascending on roads came to the village and for Met a bunch of four Americans that meet several more times in the coming days. In General, it seems that the Americans are the most going on. I called to Cabane du Mont Fort cabin and I was told, but because I'm a single traveler can get and they will find me anywhere.

The road goes in a few small villages. Oooh view cabin reminds the typical Moorland in England (of course, if you ignore the surrounding point) but these areas here at Alpine Moorland.

In a cabin on the upper floor ochnati double room with a guy. Now begins in cabin: a network in two-minute shower in 4 Frank beer before dinner, dinner for three years, some talk about this and that with the table and the bed. Before I fell asleep somehow managed to fix broken walking stick that will accompany me until the end.

Day 5: from Cabane du Mont Cabane de Prafleuri-

In the morning I called Prafleuri cabin. I was told that a full cabin. Need to find another accommodation option tonight.

Today, entering perhaps the most impressive thing in the trail, which begins here and continues to decline to Arolla. In the cabin the way divides into two parts: the longer the shortest way from Termin station and Col via Col de la Chaux.  Two roads connecting the Col de Louvie ago again. After breakfast there was a mass rush towards a shorter way. Only Polish guy and I chose to go the long way. Navigation mistake at robbed us in about an hour and some energy. We're back on our tracks and traced the path. The road continues along the hillside with beautiful observation toward the w of the Mont Blanc. With the approach to gaining enough altitude Col from Termin station being the pass crossing effortlessly unique. When we encounter with the met for short people mass cabin that flooded us with questions about the way we did. The American interest especially if saw alpacas. Unfortunately except perhaps harsh Alpacas we've never met a soul on the road.

The Col de Louvie pass bolderim arm and continue towards the Col de Prafleuri 2965 group m is the highest point on the trail. The area looks like after a nuclear holocaust or to use a less apocalyptic expression, like another planet. Not for nothing is called Grande Desert. Rocky Road fields in gray boulders, controlling every now and then appear inside the gray-blue lakes. The mountains in this demanding and not welcoming at all.

When we entered the Prafleuri cabin asking if a spot for me. But not only the cabin was filled to the brim for dinner even they had no room for me. The woman who runs this place showed me on a map of accommodation hereabouts, but it was too far away. I asked if I could pitch a tent near the hut. The woman responded better that has reviews of monitors and fines. She asked me to walk across the mountains near the hut and tent up there. Thanking her and left. 200-300 m far from the cabin, found concealed and comfortable place and put the tent up. It was about six and I had plenty of time to move. The hut was not in the mood to go. I ate something that was food and slept at 8. Slept with clothes and all that was very cold. All night I heard banging on the tent, I thought rain. The cold worsened and was cold, especially on the soles of the feet even though I was wearing socks.

Day 6: from Cabane de Prafleuri to Arolla

I can't say I woke up because I don't think I slept all night. I left the tent and saw a tent covered half the height. It was very cold. I began to fold. The tent was wet and I felt the fingers barely functioning. I packed the gear and somehow started walking. I took off my wet gloves and tried to stir the frozen fingers while walking. After an hour I began to feel that feeling is starting to come back. But the feeling back brought with intense pain, too. It took some time until they are completely thawed out and went back to functioning normally.

All this snow day was usually easy. The peaks surrounding painted with white patches of snow. After crossing the Col de Roux mountain the Lake Lac des Dix he incidentally, an artificial lake. Before Refuge la Barma met a group of 11 Americans members of various ages were walking the path with the assistance of cable cars and public transport, and you meet a few times along the way. We had a cabin just the young guy told me a few days went to the hut.

The road continues along the Lake and then divides again for a long road that Heads South and passes Cabane de Dix and northeast through shorter. Of all the people I met there, I think I'm the only one who chose the long way. The landscape unfolds below is very impressive and we go on another planet maintains. Suddenly the hut which is located on a hill in the heart of enchanting landscapes controls. The scenery in this area I think is one of the highlights of the Trek. Don't give up the opportunity to go to the hut and hot soup. The people there are very nice. Asked if I had wet clothes and dry your fleece jacket. By the cabin, called on behalf of a group of 10 bandits who lived in caves in the area in the early 20th century and the residents of the surrounding area.

The road continues and crosses the Cheilon glacier or the edges don't surf. The route is marked in red painted stones. Kind of Nice to hear creaking shoes when you go on the ice. Shortly after crossing the glacier reaches beyond Pas de Chevres, with ladders. The ladders are placed alternately vertically and horizontally. Who has acrophobia is not advisable to look back but everything else did, the scenery behind.

Begin the descent to the areola. Snow maintains and follows me from here to the end. The environment is adorned with patches of snow. I noticed the geologic environment variable: metmorfim rocks so the properties of the calcareous Alps alternating pale.

The areola to Hotel Les Ecureuils Nati who runs the same-name. For 37 Frank breakfast got double. Two Scandinavian girls Hiking weekend, after receiving the common room. Breakfast is scheduled for 7:00 but I fell asleep before Marie caught me and asked if I wanted to join the two girls for breakfast they invited to 8.30. I said of course.

Day 7: Arolla La Sage

Scandinavian (Norwegian and Finnish one) were discovered when two girls aolzzot and old biddies in the best sense of the word. I heard them stories about winter with skis in the snow accompanied by Norwegian beautiful pictures that showed me over the phone. I was wondering how to go with chutes increases and have demonstrated how it's done in graceful movements that are something between dancing to. The meal lasted until quarter to 10 and only ten o'clock and I broke it.

The destination is the town of La Sage. Tuesday should be short and hard. The nice way and special challenges. Pass Lake, little bit him there. I sat there for a beer in the company of a pair of Wales I knew before. They told me they were called several places in La Sage and found an opening and they intend to stay at Les Hauderes.

I came to La sage and turned into a hotel that bears the same name as the hotel in Arolla, l'ecureuil apparently had ample space (60 Frank HB). Kind of an odd place, with a lot of rooms with varying degrees of comfort. I got a room with several beds that I was alone. It's run by someone who speaks French in a strange accent. The view from outside is spectacular and I had the audacity to ask for another room facing the view. He mumbled something about needing to get more clients, but show me a room on the top floor who actually refer to. But when I saw the agency there were returned quickly to the original room. In a room prepared a bunch of Americans and I with my lame French served as interpreter (like instead of others along the path at every meeting between Americans and French speakers). Dinner was pretty good by the way.

Day 8: La Sage to Zinal

In terms of the schedule was behind about half a day compared to my program. I had to close the gap somehow. One way to do that was to go today to Zinal that would normally take days if this way through Cabane de Moity. But there is a shorter variation Gail IO recommended him in her way, and decided to choose it.

The road begins on the rise toward Col de Torrent. A beautiful pass landscapes. The path descends into the artificial lake with the turquoise waters Lac de Moiry.  Lakeside restaurant stopped to snack and continued on the way up to the mountain pass, the Col de Sorebois. From there the road drops steeply towards Zinal. Before the decline should for of cable cars and hoping all the time that go in the right direction. Many of the less stupid holchim me, just drop them on the gondola to Zinal and save them hours. Markup that isn't really clear and easy to miss the path that goes down below the cable car the way I did and the way broad gata Zinal coming down the zigzag your way up to town.

At Zinal tried to find a place for both. First seen in a common room with mattresses on the ground don't really liked. The second was not. Can't I search but I went to a small restaurant attached to little other than grass and facilities lacked nothing. Owner, beautiful actress, also warned me that it would be a cold night. I told her I already went one night somewhere in the mountains and is well equipped with two heart me blankets. The hands were a pair of their England that meet more down the road and young American guy The woman was right. Was cold 2-3 degrees below zero and the blankets I don't know what would.

Day 9: Gruben-Zinal

In the morning I left the tent and saw that everything around is covered with frost. The American guy was trying to bask in the hand gestures, and couldn't sleep all night because of the cold. I noticed that my tent covered with a layer of ice. When I fold it couldn't get rid of ice that sticks to the inlet manifold, a phenomenon that could exist with my neighbors. Support Rod couldn't tent. The vertebrae were stuck firmly and only after great effort managed to fold it. The clips that connect the two sheets of the tent I couldn't disconnect with, literally. At first I attributed it to the tent's faults, but after more thought I realized the problem. My tent was wet from the previous night at Cabane de Prafleuri. The water had frozen tent at night and ice created the Frost accumulated. The tents of neighbor when they were dry and did not have these symptoms. So learned the hard way not to camp soaked night was going to be cold.

The way to forks to Gruben Variant that passes through the Hotel Weisshorn extension for vitchn and even that requires a day's walk also. The second way is much shorter and the direction Col la Forclata. A feature of the last few days all over again: her long, beautiful landscapes and steep the next place.

Gruben is a small place and hotel Schwarzhorn is the only option. Great hotel with shared accommodations scattered mattresses which was on the floor. The love seat is person involves rubbing with strangers in the night, so was glad to discover a single mattress next to the window because what was available, and hastened to settle it. Because this place is a bottleneck, it was full of people I met in various stages of the walk, so it felt like a reunion.

Heard in the Hall who spoke Hebrew, and blessing them. They said goodbye, but since the end of the shared toilet at won them ignored. Actually, I'm not looking for Israelis when abroad, I have enough of them. But when I meet those I treat them just like everyone else.

At dinner I sat down with Jim, a fellow American who is studying forestry in Germany and studying the pathway to guide groups. Because the dining room was packed and the wait was long for dinner, we decided to go downstairs to the bar and have a beer before dinner, which you can get at the bar. One beer turned into three and sailing stories. Is on forestry and the Grand Canyon, and I with my regular excavations on Israel.

Day 10: St. Niklaus-Gruben

The road to St. Niklaus begins in continuous increase of a few hours, but at this point the body has been so used to these lifts that come quite relaxed to Augustbord, Pass beyond the last mountain trek. On the way up, I saw the Israeli couple who met at going before. They heard I was going to stop them and to contact me. Beat them without saying a Word when I leave them dust cloud. I too know to ignore when necessary.

The road is paved with beautiful views. Before starting the descent to St. Niklaus mamrpset has a restaurant has a great view on the environment. A great place for a break. I came to St. Niklaus early and settled at Niklaus is located one kilometer from the city centre. I paid 50 francs including breakfast and got a double room including everything you need, even a private terrace facing the landscape, all neat and tidy. I sat on the patio with a beer I bought at the supermarket that is enjoying the view, and the warm sunshine of the afternoon hours.

I called to Europahutte cabin and invited anywhere. I was told that the hanging bridge in improper way and that way bypasses it to have to take into account an extra hour or two for some time. In retrospect it became clear that the intention was to bridge that is after and cabin. In front of the supermarket, bus station had seen her this Gasenried village that was supposed to be for him the next road to Europaweg. It is approximately 500 m higher and the road which passes through boring roads. I decided between me and myself this thing is not part of the trail but intermediate segment between the WHR to beginning the Europaweg. What ease the conscience when I decided to do this on the bus.

Day 11: St. Europahutte-Niklause

At 8 am on the value rises to Gasenried. The bus was a pair of Quebec who met him earlier and go part of the way today. They too were feeling guilty, it was also the first time they use public transport. We went down the three sinners, near the Church in the name for Gasenried.

The road starts rising and then snaps into the mountainside and overlooks the Valley and the ridge. This walk is definitely special. Follow the narrow path that has places that chains and you can use them, crossing numerous boulders fields, meeting through glaciers and smiling at the sight of signs are quickly crossing the next section. Talking about the bridges that look like standing on the Kiev, but they're still existing and stable. The suspension bridge which is just before the hut crossed when each step I pray that thin adickt which is the bridge and who knew better times will last. Nevertheless, I suggest not to give up this part of the trail.

The cabin arrived early. With the addition of five Swiss franc ochnati in a shared bedroom slightly less. What I remember is probably this cabin, especially the girl who worked there. As beautiful as a flower, two golden braids pinned to her, and despite her age and her dreamy appearance she did everything done quickly and efficiently. Sat alone on the porch and read something and she went to arrange the tables, and the chance to talk a bit. Apparently it is in Finland a vacation from school and today is especially pleased that her mother comes to visit her and stay with her in the hut two nights.

At dinner, I sat with an English couple who were camping neighbors in Zinal and three French met in very early stage of the path. Since I met the French and created us ties grew stronger. We arranged to meet the next day in the evening at a restaurant in Zermatt that someone recommended them for her. At night, someone snoring in the room all night and when he snored he made all kinds of different voices. But despite this I think not bad sleep the night before the last day on the trail.

Day 12: Europahutte to Zermatt

The information you get is the bridge hut is wrong and that way bypasses the bridge takes at least an hour. After the override can go even into the trail followed the trail back blocked and there's a way that drops through the Valley to Zermatt. I haven't seen reason to do the detour for another small section of the trail and decided straight off the cabin and Valley to Zermatt. The trail descends to the village of Randa and from there to the relaxed way and Tasch between typical Swiss village. The road continues after Tasch parallel to railway employees as shlorch all the way, heavy tools, making the walk to the nose and even annoying. Too bad this wonderful trail ends on the day of the walk so anemic and boring.

I came to Zermatt at 11 and at shtchnati Bahnhof (40 francs in a common room without meals) is just across from the train station and is in way station and mountain climbers. The rooms are large but minimal capacity. I went to get something to eat and went to see the Matterhorn that before I got to see, although I've heard from people that had a few of them can see it. I went to the floor where it is possible to observe the mountain but even though I was there for over an hour I couldn't see him. Clouds covered it and refuse to reveal himself. Already accepted the fact that despite all the way that I did not get to see the mountain and started walking back toward the city. Suddenly I saw the people who were in front of photographing something behind inside lights up. Then when I turned around I saw him. Share was still hidden behind clouds, but it was impossible. The peak towers with eternal snow, snow.

At six o'clock and something met the three Frenchmen who were on their way to the restaurant. They were hungry, but I ate something and told me to join them later. When I returned to the room approached me with a smile and said anyone who saw the Guide for my bed and was curious to know who I am. It was Dmitry, Russian dude has friends in Israel and visited her several times and his dream is to walk the Israel trail. When I told that I left Israel and the Israel National Trail is treated almost like an Angel descended from heaven.

What stood out was his upper lip was swollen and cracked, and wounds her large decorated When he saw the look on my face explained: he sleeps in a tent near the Col de Louvie night off him, it was just that night I slept in a tent next to the Cabane de Prafleuri. The result was deemed severe frostbite to take more time until you heal up. I got out of this night, airing the temperature plummeted him six degrees below zero, much more cheaply.

He said that the information for section from Europahutte to Zermatt is closed incorrectly. His friends called the Authority maintains the path and tell them that there is no problem to walk this section thus was. Following this information back and completed this section of the trail. It's a pity that out-of-date cabin this important information. By the guy that went for three years ago in October when all the bikatot were closed.

Eight o'clock I returned to the two olmothia were full. The owner tried to find me a place and almost done, I noticed that three French sat there and celebrated in the fondue and wine bottles for completion. I joined them and after the dinner broke up with them last breakup. On the way back to the hotel, bought a train ticket (96 Frank) and sat in the living room and listened to some climbers who sat there and exchanged experiences.

It was appropriate to finish the chapter of conclusions and comments, but I feel like I've already dug enough through this story. I could reduce it to half, but I was also able to extend it twice. Just a word about the weather: it was just wonderful. Except for one day of rain and one day of snow, which I welcome because I was given the opportunity to experience these weather was perfect, I couldn't have hoped for better.

Thanks to all the people who followed the path and have shared their experiences, it helped me a lot. If you have questions, answer them.

Later get some pictures.
