Alpine Daydreaming

Mont Ruan, originally uploaded by <<<...Buddhamountain....

A dear friend bought me “Trekking in the Alps” for Christmas. A nice glossy summary of 20 classes routes. But where to start?

Trekking in the Alps, a Cicerone GuideI’m quite fancying the Tour of Mont Ruan. There’s dinosaur footprints and no guidebook. It’s also 5-6 days so doable in a weeks holiday maybe?

There’s long term goals of Tour of Mont Blanc and HRP also in my head, so this might be a good introduction.

The good news, there’s a website www.tourduruan.com, the bad it’s in French. This seems to suggest 4 stages, so I guess the summit side trips make it longer.

Let the research begin!
