Hikers circle Mont Blanc

Considered the most popular long-distance trek in Europe, the Tour du Mont Blanc is a 110-mile route through the Alps circumnavigating the 15,744-foot peak. The trail goes through France, Italy and Switzerland and over passes up to 8,480 feet in elevation. Total elevation gain for the hike is 35,000 feet. These photos follow the Landers family of Spokane as they hike the route, stay at mountain refuges and soak in the culture they experienced during their 12-day muscle-powered adventure.
