Photo of the Day: Good Inspiration
Here is a picture of Tim Wood and I on our last day of the Via Alpina 3. This is the view from the finish of our 5 day hike from Gstaad to Montreux, Switzerland.
Here, we're standing on top of the Rochers de Naye (2,042 m), a rugged mountain on the west side of the Swiss Alps. We started early in the morning after I put out the challenge to Tim. A full day of hiking, around 18-20 km with about 2000 vertical meters uphill! (That's about 6500 feet of climbing!) It took us 6.45-7h, which was awesome. Tim is a good inspiration, 64 years old and really strong. He is also the only one who's done all stages of the Via Alpina series in Switzerland.

From the rest of the RW Staff: Way to go Tim! Congrats.
