Presenter Name: Gudrun and Peter Seifert

Presentation Title: Alpine Hiking: The Aosta Valley (NW Italy)

Presentation Description: The Aosta Valley in NW Italy is a paradise for hikers. From Mt. Blanc, the valley extends east for about 100 miles. Trail #1 runs below the Giants of the Alps, near the Swiss border.  Another, #2, traverses the Gran Paradiso National Park. Last Summer, 2017, we spent three weeks hiking portions of Trail #1. It was in excellent condition and very well marked. Overnight one stays in mountain hostels or in small private hotels. Days are spent in dramatic mountain scenery, sampling wonderful food, talking with other hikers
