Alps 2001

During August 2001, I spent four weeks in the European Alps on my first mountaineering trip beyond the shores of the UK. I hope you find this account of interest, and know that many of you will have experienced the places I have visited for yourselves. For those of you who have not, I trust that the accounts and pictures will provide you with a good insight into the world of mountaineering and offer you a brief experience of the Alps through my own eyes.

A larger version of all pictures can be seen by clicking on the relevant image. Photo information can be viewed by hovering over the chosen picture. All photos were taken by myself unless stated in the photo information.
