Gran Paradiso National Park, Italy

In the summer of 2014, my girlfriend and I spent a month traveling around France but before we met up I had 2 weeks to myself in the last half of August to explore the western Alps of France and Italy. I started off in Chamonix, France near Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, and did a day hike to Lac Blanc before traveling to Courmayeur on the Italian side to do a few more day hikes. Next I went to Cogne in Gran Paradiso National Park to begin a 5 day backpacking trip across the park before hiking over a pass into France and then continuing another backpacking trip through Vanoise National Park.

Gran Paradiso is a spectacular park with beautiful mountains, glaciers and lots of ibex and chamois.
